« Part 4: Gel Stain & Gel Varnish Part 5 of Finishing Tips series no next part

One of the parts of woodworking that many would like to do better is finishing, and that includes me. On my quest to obtain the background I have bought books, talked with professionals in the field, and searched high and low on the internet to find the answers to my questions.

Some of the questions arose as I was completing a project but others were generated by what I had read. As I have gotten older I say to myself, “I know I have read something about this particular procedure”, but I can’t remember where so I have started to make written list and copies of articles so that I can refer back to them as needed.

I know I’m going to take some heat from younger members of the LJ’s, however; you will start losing it if you do not use it all the time. It serves no purpose not to pass along this information if it can help others.

Anyway, here is a small list of articles covering the topic of finishing which I have found interesting and informative and you may as well.

Make Poplar Look Pretty




Aged- cherry-finish

20- finishing-tips





As I add to my list I will post them….that’s if I can remember.

God Bless.
