In this complete resource you will find easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions for everything from preparation -- stripping and bleaching -- to simple stains and varnishes; from french polishing and oiling to ornate decorative styles; as well as marbling and stenciling. State-of-the-art information on modern spray techniques, health and safety hints, tips on the dos and don'ts of specific woods, as well as advice for correcting common mistakes are also included. A fully illustrated directory of woods plus sections on how to fix defects such as blisters and bruises, and the care and maintenance of materials ensure professional-looking, customized wood finishes on walls, ceilings, and furniture every time.
