Session Descriptions

Wood Finishing Products and Techniques

A well-crafted woodworking project can be ruined by poor finishing products and techniques. A poorly crafted project can look like a beautiful heirloom piece if the right products and techniques are applied. This theory based session will look at different types of wood finishing products and different ways to apply them. This session will not be looking at artistic styles and techniques. Information about the composition of various types of finishes will be looked at and the pros and cons of different types of products for different types of applications will be covered. Topics covered will include: water-based vs oil-based. Urethane, varnish, lacquer, sanding sealers, epoxy, pre-catalyzed lacquers, and shellac. Linseed oil vs Tung oil vs Danish Oil. Pigment vs Dye vs Gel stains. Wipe-on vs brush on vs spray on products. Pre-finishing, sanding, cleanup products and HVLP spray guns will also be covered.
