Surface Preparation and Staining by Hendrik Varju
Passion for Wood, 2010.
$94.95 Canadian; 5 DVD set; 9 hrs.

Surface Preparation and Staining by Hendrik Varju is a 5 DVD set that is broken into the following topics: Preparation, covering sanding, how to deal with glue squeeze-out, repairing dents, and raising the grain; Coloring and Staining includes info about bleaching, staining endgrain and plywood, and how to deal with blotching. Also covered are details about water based aniline dyes and gel stains and this section also provides various techniques for applying stain. The Scraper section is included in the “bonus footage” and provides info about how to tune and sharpen a card scraper and scraper plane.

As with Varju’s other DVDs, this set is “Private Woodworking Instruction in a Box” because it is like having him there in the shop with you, giving you step-by-step instruction to get your projects ready for finishing. Hendrik covers all of the details that he would normally convey in person – often in real time so nothing is skipped. This really is personal coaching in a DVD.

Lucky whampoo is the winner. His comment was chosen at random. Come back later to read his review of the DVD set.
