Anyone who finishes wood will want to own the updated and completely revised version of the highly acclaimed The Wood finishing Book. With new, full-color photos and design, expanded information, and updates on technological advances in finishing, it’s a must-have reference.

The original book is considered the definitive resource on finishing. And this new edition is even better.
