Lessons

  1. THE wood finisher's ideal must necessarily be simply that of making the most of what he has to work with, producing the maximum of beauty and serviceability under the circumstances.
  2. CHAPTER II : PREPARATION OF NEW AND OLD SURFACES

    GETTING a surface ready for finishing is work which should be done with the utmost care when the finish is to be the finest possible and even for ordinary jobs. Unfortunately, the price received for many jobs of finishing:
  3. CHAPTER III : STAINS IN GENERAL

    The day has passed when a finisher can profitably spend his time making stains in the old way from the cooking of dye woods, minerals, and other substances.
  4. CHAPTER IV : FACTORY PREPARED STAINS

    MOST of the stain used today in the building trade is the factory prepared type. Oil stains probably are used to a greater extent than water stains, although the latter is greatly preferred for very high-class work.
  5. CHAPTER V : WATER STAINS

    For the finest kind of finishing on the interior wood trim of buildings, cabinets, and furniture, water stains are easily the best type, particularly the aniline and coal tar dye group which comes in convenient dry and liquid form.
  6. CHAPTER VI : STAIN BRUSHING AND PROCEDURE

    Many things influence the color of a stained wood surface. Various boards of the same kind of wood, and even from the same tree, may finish up a slightly different color hue when using the same stain.
  7. CHAPTER VII : PREPARING WOOD TO TAKE STAIN WITH EVEN COLOR EFFECT

    The wood trim and cabinet work of the average building is stained without much thought about preparing the wood to take the color evenly, but there is no doubt about the better results to be gained by more attention to this detail.
  8. CHAPTER VIII : THE USE OF WOOD FILLERS

    WOOD fillers are needed for the purpose of filling the open cells or tiny crevices in open-grain woods such as oak, ash, chestnut, butternut, elm, mahogany, walnut, etc.
  9. CHAPTER IX : VARNISH AND SHELLAC

    THE purposes served by the use of varnish are quite obvious. First, it is needed to protect surfaces from moisture which will warp, swell and raise the grain of the wood and from gasses ever present in the air which discolors wood not protected.
  10. CHAPTER X VARNISHING, RUBBING, POLISHING

    GENERALLY speaking, the varnishes of today are far superior to any supplied to finishers of other times. They are as nearly foolproof as science and remarkable manufacturing facilities can make them.
  11. CHAPTER XI : VARNISH DEFECTS AND THEIR CAUSES

    WE see about us remarkably beautiful jobs of varnishing on furniture and automobiles. In our homes and business buildings, we like to expect equally beautiful varnishing to be done on wood trim, floors and cabinet work.
  12. CHAPTER XII : LACQUERS

    THERE has been a much-needed change in the use of the word lacquer of late to describe transparent coatings. It has been used in such a general way for years that one had little idea of the composition of any product called lacquer.
  13. CHAPTER XIII : WAX FINISHES AND OIL-RUBBED FINISHES

    THE wax-finished surface has a beauty all its own, although it cannot really be said that it reproduces the effect of a hand-rubbed varnish finish. Like most fin-fishes, it has its advantages and some disadvantages. To make the most of this finish, therefore, the finisher should acquaint himself with the characteristics of this material and its actions under common circumstances.
  14. CHAPTER XIV : SCHEDULES OF WORKING OPERATIONS

    NATURAL FINISH ON HARD AND SOFT WOODS; STAINED FINISH ON HARD AND SOFT WOODS; CABINET AND FURNITURE FINISHES; EXTRA FINE CABINET AND FURNITURE FINISHES
  15. CHAPTER XV : WOODS AND DESCRIPTIONS OF CHARACTERISTICS

    THERE is a great deal of knowledge about the characteristics of woods commonly used for interior trim, cabinets and furniture which helps the wood finisher to do his work more effectively, both as to beauty of the finishes he produces and their durability.
  16. CHAPTER XVI : BRUSH GRAINING

    On some jobs of remodeling the matter of cost must be kept down to the minimum and for that reason the old painted, grained or cheaply finished trim, fixtures and often the furniture must be given a brighter color note and fresh look without spending much money on the refinishing.
  17. CHAPTER XVII : DECORATIVE WOOD FINISHES BY GLAZING AND HIGHLIGHTING

    PAINTED and enameled wood trim is finished with very interesting, artistic effects by glazing it much in the same manner as walls are finished with the glazing, mottling and blending methods.
  18. CHAPTER XVIII : REPAIRING DAMAGED FINISHES

    AFTER producing a nearly perfect job of finishing on wood trim, cabinets or furniture the finisher sometimes meets with the great disappointment of having some other workers around the job damage the surface before the customer has accepted the work, or after.
