The Basics of Wood Finishing with Tim Puro August 20-21, 2022
This two-day class is perfect for those new to woodworking or for the woodworker who builds the project and then wonders, “Now what do I do?” The class will focus on learning the language of finishing and the skills that every finisher needs to know, such as how to choose the appropriate finish for your project, using different methods of coloring wood, and learning how to design a finish. At the end of the class students will have finish sample boards that will give them a better understanding of how finishing works. While this course won’t make anyone a finishing guru, it hopefully will make finishing more fun which in turn will help participants get more out of the finishing books and videos that are on the market. It’s time to move beyond simple wipe on finishing. Tim will show students how to take the next step in the finishing process. All are encouraged to bring small projects they are working on to develop finishing schedules.
