About This Class

The first thing I do when completely refurbishing a piece is to remove the old finish.  

If I take the old finish off I don't have to worry about not damaging that finish nor do I have to try to match the finish on any new parts I make.

For this class I'll discuss mechanical and chemical methods of removing a finish and the benefits and drawbacks of each.  I'll also go over some of the safety considerations for each.

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.
