Do you have a pile of projects sitting in your shop that are complete except for the finish? Or are you stuck in the rut of making pieces that deserve a great finish, but you revert to rubbing on a bit of oil and call it done because it feels safe and comfortable? It’s time to kick up your skills in my Finishing Week class.
Bring along one of your smaller projects that is in need of finishing and we’ll work together to bring out all the beauty you’ve built in. Everything from surface prep to finishing the finish is covered in this five day class.
Some of the skills learned in the Finishing Week class are:
- Surface prep – the foundation of a good finish
- Confident coloring – no more patchwork projects
- Popping the figure
- Get that silky smooth top coat with a hand-rubbed finish
Materials are included in the class fee. You are welcome to bring one small project to class for finishing, or you are welcome to finish the sample boards provided in class.
Each student should supply his, or her, own:
- Safety glasses and hearing protection
- Combination or machinist square
- Bevel gauge
- Bench chisels
- Carvers mallet
- Dovetail saw
- Marking gauge
- Smooth plane or jack plane
- Block plane
- Tape measure or folding rule.
If you do not have the tools on the list, don’t panic, there are plenty of tools for your use in class.
