Wood finishing doesn't have to be complicated or confusing. It can be "boiled down" to simple step-by-step instructions. And that's what this book offers; no science, no art, just easily-to-follow directions with lots of pictures to show you every step of the process.

Inside, you'll find specific instructions on how to finish common woods using widely-available finishing materials—the kind of wood, stains and finish coats every home center, paint store or hardware store carries. Just match the wood to the final color and result you want. Then follow the step-by-step instructions and eliminate the guesswork.

Wood Finishing 101 is by Bob Flexner, who has been writing about and teaching wood finishing to hobbyists and professionals for over 20 years. Let Bob's years of experience guide you to beautiful results using his easy to understand directions.
