Do you hate finishing? Well, you’re not alone, but fear not, finishing can be fun and rewarding. I will be teaching finishing techniqes from surface prep to final polish June 28 through July 2 at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking in Manchester Connecticut. We’ll work with hand applied finishes, spray finishing, coloring and glazing, and a whole bunch of interesting techniqes.
