With new, full-color photos and design, expanded information, and updates on technological advances in finishing, The New Wood Finishing Book is a must-have reference.

If you finish wood, youll want to own the updated and completely revised version of the highly acclaimed The Woodfinishing Book. Michael Dresdner, a nationally known finishing expert with over 20 years of experience in the field, focuses on finishes that amateur woodworkers and finishers use -- not fussy, unattainable finishes. He successfully demystifies the art and science of finishing with clear and up-to-date information, including coverage of spray finishing and the new generation of water-based finishes.

Insightful Q&As provide answers to the most common finishing questions, and amusing "finishing tales" show the lighter side of finishing challenges. The original book is considered the definitive resource on finishing. But this new edition is even better.

Excellent coverage of modern finishing practices without weighing the read down with useless info.
