Wood Finishing Basics

  • Blue Heron Woodworking (map)

Demystifying the confusing world of wood finishes!  Learn how to determine what is the best finish for your woodworking project. We will cover varnish, lacquer, oils, waxes, polys, oil-based, water-based, wiping, sprays, and brushes.  A good finish starts with good surface preparation so we will spend time with sandpaper, sanders and surface prep.  After attending this class you will be able to finish all the projects you start!

Students should bring work clothing with NO long sleeves or dangling drawstrings.  Long hair MUST be tied back or held in a cap.  No loose jewelry.

Please bring your personal respirator and if you have one.
