To get the best results, here are some of our tips to help you finish your furniture.

information woodworking resource from Woodworking Tips - free woodworking plans projects management waste recycling A Recycled Brush Holder 
Since I am big into recycling, I found another use for those plastic containers that baby wipes come in. The lids already have an expansion hole in the top. This makes it easy to insert the brush handle, so the hole grips the handle firmly. And with the lid in place, the brush stays suspended and the thinner does not evaporate nearly as quickly.

Well, it is not unusual to end up with a blotchy finish after staining maple -- even if you first use a stain controller. Stain controllers can only minimize blotches, not eliminate them. If you look at a piece of maple through a microscope, ou would see end grain where you don not normally expect it -- on the surface of the board.

Most of the obviously harmful solvents evaporate as finishes cure. So are finishes really dangerous? Once they have cured completely, most may be safe -- but they may not be. To be on the safe side, you can use a finish approved for human consumption, like mineral oil or walnut oil.

information woodworking resource from WoodworkingTips - finishes finishing wooden projects free tips information Decorative Flocking 
The guys at Woodsmith suggested I use decorative flocking. They use a product called Suede-Tex. Suede-Tex is not a fabric. It is made from whisker-size sprinkles of rayon fabric. But after it is applied, it looks just like fabric lining. And, lucky for me, it turns out that decorative flocking should be applied after a project is finished. Otherwise, a finish could discolor the fibers.
