Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was recommended to buy this book by a professional furniture restorer and refinisher. It's one of the best books on the subject. It starts out with a section on wood preperation that goes into how to get the surface ready to apply the various finishes. What I liked was how Sam Allen explains the different tools and how to sharpen them which is very important to know. Once the surface is smoothed then it goes into the tools to use to apply the finish and then to the actual finishes and technigues used for all the types of finishes. I highly recommend this book and after reading it you will come away with such a complete knowledge of finishing from A to Z.
