About This Class

Create a beautiful showcase piece from old, tired furniture. Finishing.

In the final installment of this series on refurbishment of old furniture, I'll be going over how I prepare the work for the finish and apply the finish.

The prep work includes the final sanding and filling nail holes.  I will be using shellac and demonstrating a couple different methods to apply this finish.  Lastly I will attach all of the hardware necessary for doors and shelves or drawers.

Tools and materials*:

Sandpaper

Wood filler

Finish of your choosing, I'll be using shellac.

Brush, finishing pad or spray equipment.

*You may need more or less depending on you specific project.

If I've done this right, limited free enrollment can be found here.

I am driven by a need to create. This has lead me down some interesting roads.

I know a bit about woodwork, metal work, leather, casting, and several other disciplines. I also enjoy passing along what I know to others.

Life is a continual path of improvement.
