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. 

This class will give you the confidence and skill you need to finish your projects without that nagging fear of ending up with a finish that looks horrible.  I'll also delve into repairing or replacing finishes that have gone wrong or simply need refreshing.

Here's a finishing tip: Shellac is available only in gloss sheen. For a less glossy surface flattening agents can be added to the shellac or the gloss can be toned down by rubbing the surface with fine steel wool or gray Scotchbrite.
