That’s always how you should start a project.

Once I realized this, and became really tired of being confused all the time about finishing, I bought every book on the subject and I setup a laboratory for experimentation. There are still some types of products that I lack experience with, but because I now understand what they are in theory, I have an insight into how those products will behave once I use them.

To me, that’s the key “trick”...become a student on finishing. Research it. Go to school.

The only other trick I can give is to make dewaxed shellac a part of your routine. It really is a universal product, whereas you can remove a lot of the compatibility issues and concerns you might have regarding finishing.
