I’m a medium skilled wood worker and I HATE doing finishes – particularly the sanding when there are lots of small surfaces. I’m a confirmed Normite and prefer to use machines whevever possible. My aging fingers agree.
I’ve started wondering if it might make more sense to do the finish earlier in the process: perhaps before cutting the individual pieces or at least before assembly.
I’m aware that I could damage the finish by doing this but I still wonder if it might be better.
Any opinions ?
