This course is ideal for anyone wanting to know more about the finishing process. Learn the techniques and products used by the studio. It is not a ‘black art’. Simple techniques will help you finish your work to a
professional standard. Students produce samples of all the finishes in oak, walnut, cherry, maple, sapele. We will cover sanding, scraping, raising wood grain, wood stains, wood bleaching, UV protection, oils, waxing, brushing and ebonising, and if time allows, a little repairing.
Sample set preparation, sanding, scraping, raising grain, oil types and application, wood stains.
Wood bleaching, ebonising and scorching, UV protection, waxes and repairing.
"Over a few years I had become increasingly dissatisfied with the results being obtained from various finishes tried, including Osmo, Danish Oils and Different Waxes.
I had booked onto your weekend course “in desperation”, hoping that you would have the answer. I am absolutely delighted as the knowledge you gave has cleared all the clouds of inability and frustration.
The choice of finish that I shall now use is superbly simple and would seem to be totally fool proof.
I’ll start my next project having the confidence that it can be finished with ease and with a professionality that I’ll be proud of.
Many thanks Marc"
