Many woodworkers clear coat their furniture to show off the wood’s natural beauty. However, your choice of clear coats and how they are applied can enhance or detract from your woodworking.  In this two day class students will brush, spray and wipe on shellac, water base, lacquer, and oils to create clear coat samples that will help in choosing the best clear finish for any woodworking project.  The finish is the first thing people see so you have to get it right.  Spend the weekend with Tim and you will learn how to apply a topcoat that people want to touch!
