Top Customer Reviews
As just one example, I was planning on using a particular MinWax finish which calls for a next coat within two hours. Flexner actually shows this particular finish, what happens if you follow the (incorrect) instructions, what happens if you wait longer, and why it works like that. He presents many, many options, but at the same time, lays out some basic techniques for the beginner.
I read the book from start to finish, skipping just a very few parts, but the book is written so you can start at pretty much any chapter; the text has many embedded references so that you can get more details on related topics.
In short, this is just a very readable and useful book. I'm so glad I got it.
Bob goes to great lengths to explain everything from chemical and physical makeup of finishes to how (and what to do about it) different woods accept various finishes.
I'm sure I was like many novice woodworkers - using poly for most everything, now I know better and am getting excellent results and great protection for my projects, not to mention his advice has cut down on wasted materials. And one (of many)great eye opener was Bob's comments on Gel Stain - this is great stuff!
