You’ll learn shop-proven application methods that virtually guarantee your success. And along the way, you’ll discover tips and shortcuts that will save you both time and money as you achieve your best-ever finishes.

DP 309 Easy Wipe-On Finishes

Price: $24.95

Fine finishes start with knowledge. This 50-minute video gives you the inside information you need to master both materials and methods.
You’ll discover how to:

  • Apply oil (such as Watco) for a “close-to-the-wood” finish that invites touching.
  • Choose and apply food-safe finishes. The truth about these finishes may shock you.
  • Lay down a film-building finish without a single brush mark.
  • Confidently fix common mistakes to get your project back on course—fast.
  • “Finish the finish” to get exactly the surface sheen and protection you want.

A finish can make or break your woodworking efforts. Learn how to take all of your projects from so-so to warm glow.

Bonus Material
