Overview

The art of finishing is best learned with complete, visual step-by-step instructions - and that is exactly what Taunton's Complete Illustrated Guide to Finishing offers you. With the help of detailed process photography, you'll be able to demystify the process of finishing - and get the look you want for all your woodwork.

Jeff Jewitt, a world-renowned wood finisher, provides an in-depth coverage of tools and materials and covers all of the key processes. You'll learn about everything from surface preparation to color matching. Especially valuable is the coverage of advanced and special techniques, not usually covered in general finishing books, including detailed information on adjusting color, disguising defects, toning, glazing, spray finishing and "rubbing out" a finish. This comprehensive finishing reference is the most complete and detailed book on the subject - and you will find it incredibly valuable - no matter what your skill level.

Massive amounts of info and techniques,...

N A M from Wesson, MS Posted September 13, 2007
Massive amounts of info and techniques, but kind of overwhelming for the beginner. Will make a good reference guide. All the phases of finishing are broken down and detailed. There is no clear detailed procedure for beginners or novices who need to finish a particular type of wood. At my level I need detailed recommendations and procedures for say 3/4" maple plywood cabinet with techniques, stains, sealants, etc. I'm sure the info is in here, it will just take time and diligence to extract.
