Interior wood finishing can be a very confusing topic, especially if you start looking into it on line. It seems like every woodworker has a technique and/or recipe for their own special top coat and process. It doesn't need to be that complicated though. Come in and talk to us about your project we'll not only make sure you have the right products, we'll make sure you feel comfortable tackling it by the time you leave. We've put together a how to section with links to Old Masters web site that will give you some good advice and pointers as well.

NOTE: These links, except Osmo, will take you to an outside website. (Old Masters)
