Need Finishing Help and Advice?

If you’re looking for information about wood finishing techniques, paints, brushes, spray guns or finishing materials, you’ve come to the right place! This site is your gateway to the products and services I offer, including consultation services for small and large shops. Please consider me as a resource for the finishing information you need.


Wood finishing–at both the professional and the hobbyist level–has been my primary business for over three decades. In that time, I’ve run my own restoration business, written five books, authored hundreds of magazine articles and produced four popular videotapes on all aspects of wood finishing. I’ve also headed up the R & D department of a well-known guitar manufacturer, served as founding general manager of another guitar manufacturing company and consulted with numerous industrial clients and custom woodworkers on finishing and production manufacturing.

I hope you enjoy my site. I will be adding more valuable information and new products as time permits. Meanwhile, browse my archives of brief finishing essays and anecdotes, order a book or video from my online catalog, and contact me if you or your company needs a finishing solution. I’m here to serve you
