Highly figured woods need only a few coats of shellac to look spectacular. But how do you finish rotary cut oak plywood or pine and make it look good? A skilled finisher can make common woods like poplar, birch plywood, and even particle board look like more expensive woods.

In this two day class, Tim will teach you the techniques finishers use to give rich color and depth to less interesting woods.

The finishing skills taught in this class will make your furniture look better, regardless what wood it is made of. So if you want to improve your finishing of common wood or highly figured woods this will be the perfect class for you!

Key Points:

Make poplar and maple look like cherry
Finish birch plywood to look like walnut or mahogany
Use yellow, orange or green dye to "fix" multicolor woods like poplar
Glaze and tone wood to create depth
Finish plywood and solid wood of the same species to look more uniform

There is a $45 annual registration fee that will be added to your the total amount of the class if this is the first class you are registering for this season.
