  • Final Finishing

    Who is the best finisher in your area and where are you?

    If we could find a person who is local and would do it, perhaps we could send that special piece to he or she for final finish. Finisher makes some money and we don't ruin a piece.

    What do you think?

    I'd definitely be interested in that. I'm always happy with how things turn out, but sometimes it would be great to hand a project off, in order to get started on another. I've met with a couple people about doing it. I love the assembly lie approach.

      Re: Final Finishing

      You know, for me final finishing is something I've grown to love. Its awesome watching the beauty of the wood come alive before my eyes. When I first started learning, if I could have found a finisher I'd have used em but now I'm glad I didn't. Now if I could hand a project off for sanding.......

        Not much interest in this topic huh?

        I wish there was more. A good finisher brings a piece to life.

        I don't mind sanding at all and I'm a reasonable finisher but I would look elsewhere for an heirloom quality finish on that special piece.

          I agree with you, I have considered doing that in the past. In my case I would prefer to spend time in the shop doing woodwork.

            I've been doing custom finishing since the mid 80's.....

              Now there's the kinda answer we're looking for. Thanks Don! I think you might be able to help me towards the end of March.

              I'm 5 hours from Don and I would have no problem sending or taking a piece that far.
