Course Description  The essence of a good finish is not in the way you apply it but in the way you prepare the surface before application.  This preparation may take place even before you assemble the piece.  On this course you will find out about the importance of surface preparation, how to get a perfect surface that will give you a perfect finish, and then how to apply the appropriate finish to give the best results.  The finishing techniques will be kept simple ie no spray equipment required.
