It also covers hand rubbing techniques to greatly improve an imperfect finish without needing to recoat. Plus there is a long and detailed bonus section on “The Perfect Polyurethane Finish”, as well as a real-time project finishing demonstration. You can read more about this 5-DVD set here:http://passionforwood.com/woodworking/dvds-hand-finishing-rubbing-out.html. It is valued at Cdn. $94.95 + taxes and shipping.
