Since they made Wood & Lumber category, Why can’t they make WOOD FINISHING category also?

I think a finishing category is a great idea. I find it to be the most daunting task there is. There are so many options out there and everyone has their own little tricks.

I agree, I love this site, but when I pass the link on to friends they always wonder where the finishing Category is!!

I have to agree as well. My wife got me a finishing book to read and reference, but I would have to take notes to remember everything that I was reading. I think it would be great to have a finishing section to find out what others have done and what products work well/bad with certain wood species.

Good idea. It seems to me that finishing is likely the most important part of
making a good piece. In most cases, it takes me about as much time (and talent?)
to finish the piece as to construct it. Also, there seems to be new finishing
products and related application techniques coming along faster than new tools
and the related use techniques.

Have your say...
