Jeff Jewitt offers a primer on solvents – which ones are appropriate for water- or oil-based finishes, shellacs, or solvent lacquers, whether for spraying, brushing, or wiping on the finish. There’s a bit of chemistry, but mostly he identifies various thinners, their drying times, and which finish they work best on. A chart helps clarify the details, and a sidebar tells you what kind of gloves work best with each solvent. From Fine Woodworking #151
