Description - Hand-applied Finishes by Jeff Jewitt

This book takes you through the steps necessary to apply finishing materials by hand, detailing each process, the materials used, and the correct technique. You'll learn how to set up a safe and suitable working environment, how to prepare the surface of the wood for finishing, and how to choose the right stain to color the wood. At the core of the book are step-by-step techniques for six classic hand-applied finishes: shellac (including French polishing), oil, varnish, lacquer, water-based finish, and milk paint. Each technique is clearly and concisely explained, with many sharp photos and detailed drawings to accompany the text.
