The art of woodfinishing can improve an uninspired piece of woodwork, but poor staining and polishing can equally ruin good craftsmanship. Because of this, woodfinishing has gained an air of mystery, and is often thought of as difficult to master, especially by students and amateur woodworkers.
Woodfinishing is the complete guide to every kind of finish, traditional and modern: beginning with why we finish wood and the importance of good preparation, the book examines methods of darkening, lightening, colouring and enhancing wood. How to preserve and treat timber, and when and how to strip and restore finishes, both interior and exterior, are all explained clearly and fully.
The straightforward, common-sense text is based upon years of professional and teaching experience, and is backed up by 136 colour and black-and-white photographs and nearly 50 line drawings. There are step-by-step instructions for woodfinishing techniques in words and pictures, and checklists for identifying and improving finishes are included.
As Ian Hosker says: `I hope that this book goes some way towards dispelling the mystique that surrounds woodfinishing, and helps you develop your skills.'

Ray Key is one of Britain's most respected and successful wood turners. He sets out in detail here how to master the basics of the craft, and then, by explaining many design principles, shows how to take your work that important stage further.
In a book that is both personal and instructive, he discusses the types of lathe that are commonly available and the ones he has used, other machinery necessary to help in the successful practice of woodturning (something not mentioned in most books on the subject), the hand tools required — with special emphasis on the development of high-speed steel tools, their benefits and disadvantages - chucks and accessories, general workshop advice, finishing methods and tips (some of which will be found a little unusual but highly useful). There are detailed and highly illustrated sections on the making of platters, boxes and bowls, finishing with some advanced projects designed to test and stretch the ability of those readers who have reached a higher standard of proficiency.
Processes and techniques are illustrated, as well as examples of finished work by the author and a number of internationally-known woodturners that will provide inspiration for all those practising this fascinating craft.
