Light and dark areas blend during the finishing process to produce the uniquely attractive look of real wood furniture. While you can paint, varnish or finish your furniture in other ways, one of the most commonly used finishing processes is staining and topcoating. To get the best results, here are some of our tips to help you finish your furniture.

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.

Wood stains should be used to enhance to natural color of a wood, rather than to try and hide or obliterate it. If the latter is your goal then the best bet is to use paint, not stain. There are various types of stain and choosing the right one can appear to be a rather confusing decision. However, what it really boils down to is the following...

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.

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.

French polishing is a method of applying shellac and has nothing to do with materials as the term may indicate. No polish is used in this method of finish.

Six easy steps to a flawless finish by Michael Pekovich. Finally, I’ve found a finish that gives me the durability and flawless look I want along with easy application. The answer is wiping varnish. It’s a versatile finish that is thin enough to wipe on, but dries hard even when applied in thicker coats. This allows me to build the finish quickly, then end with thin coats that give me just the look I want.

The oil finish is one of the most traditional approaches to completing your project. While it does not provide as much protection as more modern finishes such as varnishing, oil finishes bring out the natural beauty of the wood better. If you want to stain the wood prior to oiling it, use a water-based stain as oil-based dyes will clog-up the wood is pores, thus stopping the oil finish from soaking in effectively

Most oil-based stains color wood the same way paint does --with finely ground particles called pigments. When you open a can of paint that is been sitting for a while, you will notice that the pigments have settled into a thick sludge at the bottom of the can. Stirring suspends the pigments in the liquid in the can -- linseed oil and mineral spirits.
