Janel Posted March 10, 2012 Report Share Posted March 10, 2012 At a woodworking store recently I was guided to look at a particular book to find some of the answers to the questions that I was asking. I bought it, and am very happy to be reading it. Understanding Wood Finishing: How to Select and Apply the Right Finish by Bob Flexner Completely revised and updated, October 2010 An American Woodworker Book Fox Chapel Publishing ISBN 978-1-56523-566-3 $24.95 US Bob Flexner, a wood worker, studied the chemistry of wood finishes beginning with using a local university engineering library. He presents and dispels numerous myths and delves deeply into the makeup and character of wood and finishes. This book is a very helpful and useful resource. I have a better understanding of what I have in cans and jars in my studio, and it helps to explain the how and why of what I have only intuited as I made choices between products over the years.
