Good addition to your library...
I started doing refinishing work and woodworking when I was about 10
with my father. Now being somewhat older and getting back into it, I started
looking for good resources to expand my abilities with wood finishes.
Not to mention the fact that I ran into a few finish issues rehabilitating
some birch cabinets in my kitchen.
The current BEST of the finishing books
I've read a bunch of finishing books in search of the perfect finish. This book is by far the most thorough, best organized book out there. The quality of the images and illustrations are outstanding and the books is packed full of useful information. I love all of the high quality images they use to show you errors in finishes and then go on to show you how to resolve the problems. They give pluses and minuses of each finishing technique and show you the best ways to apply them. All in all, A GREAT BOOK.
Bob Flexner, move over, there's a new book in town
At over 300 pages of superbly illustrated information, this book is the new bible on wood finishing. The words "Complete" and "Illustrated" in the title tell it all.
Just about everything you need to know about finishing from basics to advanced is covered. Every topic is illustrated with full-color photos and line drawings when needed.
Plenty of hints, off-page references and guidance.
Topics are covered in anywhere from a half-page with three photos to whole chapters. Jeff and his wife, Susan, the photographer, have gone out of their way to show every process and product talked about. Every chapter is organized the same way, which may be the way of Taunton's new, "Complete Illustrated Guide to..."
If you are only going to buy one book on finishing, or if you have a whole shelf full, you need to buy and read this book.
Great job, Jeff and Susan!
Now that I have a bit more time, I thought the table of contents would
be interesting and tell more about the wealth of information in this book:
