Finishes and Finishing
When it's time to apply a knockout finish, there are a lot of contenders. Some can take a punch; some bounce back fast. Here's how to choose the one that's a fair match for your project.
I’m working with a wide piece of walnut that has sapwood on one edge. Is there a good way to stain the sapwood to match the heartwood?
When applying the stain, I accidentally left a streak of stain across the grain. Now, I can see that wipe mark. What can I do about it?
I was given some maple boards, but how can I tell if they are hard or soft maple? Also, what’s the best finish for each?
What finish would best protect the front and sides of a bathroom vanity and medicine cabinet?
I am in the process of refinishing wooden casement window frames. What kind of finish should I use?
I picked up a stunning piece of birch with an exceptional flame pattern grain. How can I finish it to show off the patterns while retaining its light color?
