Finishing wood is the final step in any woodworking project but the entire finishing process can be confusing and intimidating for a lot of people.  It doesn’t have to be! 

In this dynamic teaching session geared to the small shop woodworker, Jon Peters walks you step-by-step through the basic finishing processes and products he’s been using for the past 25 years as a furniture designer and maker. 

Jon discusses wood selection, sanding, and the different products and application techniques he chooses depending on the intended use of the piece.  Learn how and when to use solvent based lacquers, oil based varnishes, waterborne finishes, finishing waxes, paint, and more.
