For Those Who Love to Build & Hate to Finish
by Teri Masaschi

Foolproof Wood Finishing’s full title makes it clear who will benefit the most from the book's wisdom - woodworkers intimidated by the final step (aka "where my hard work goes to die.") Let's be fair - the skills of woodworking and woodfinishing are not necessarily the same. Good thing Teri Masaschi has so much encouragement and so many tips for intimidated finishing neophytes!

The revised edition of her classic book continues to be an essential guide full of practical and amusing advice. You’ll learn how to prepare your wood; determine the best finish; make accurate and comprehensive test samples; fix minor defects; avoid uneven results; and circumvent common wood coloring pitfalls. And once your project is completed, it will benefit from tips on maintenance and restoration. There are even some recipes for Deep Antique Cherry and other color finishes.

The book’s emphasis is on practical, step-by-step instruction (and 51 exercises) that demystifies finishing and gives you confidence that your work will beautify, not ruin, your woodwork. You’ll be able to troubleshoot and avoid frustration and expensive mistakes.

With a product source list and glossary. Full color photographs throughout the book. Softcover. 8 1/2" x 11". 191 pages.
