Well we finally did it. We just put the finishing touches on our first instructional DVD: A Simple Varnish Finish. Many folks have requested I review my “go-to finish” process in detail and that’s exactly what I did. Its nearly 40 minutes of content devoted specifically to my wiping varnish finish method. Every step is demonstrated thoroughly with lighting and camera angles that ensure you see ALL of the detail. I also go into a few other variations of the finish as well as tips and tricks that will save you time, money, and headaches. After you watch the main feature, you will probably want to review just the finish steps alone. So I’ve included a second feature on the DVD that simply recaps the entire process in about a minute. Very handy!

The DVD is available NOW in our store: CHECK IT OUT!! Here’s the little promo:

Looks like a great DVD, I’d love to get my hands on a copy…(heading over to the store now)

Who is that music by? Reminds me of a group of guys I used to work with called ‘The Big Pill’ out of Pasadena, CA… anyways, can’t wait to check it out!

Thanks for all the great woodworking experience you so kindly share free of charge to the world, you’re one of the best sources of information I’ve found online, keep up the great work!!

P.S. I left a message on the WoodTalk line regarding purchasing a tablesaw/dust collector from Jet, if you get it, let me know your thoughts on that either via the show or just a PM here… Thanks Again :-)

I ordered it -for $15 bucks it is a little more that a magazine and less than a book——GREAT buy, I am looking forward to getting my copy.

To all:

Well, I think a little differently – this whole thing actually scares me… Take a look.... Hmmmm….
