Easy to follow, good pictures and diagrams. :)

Great Book! I haven't finished it yet, there is heaps of detail! Everything from wood preparation, working environment and temperature, ventilation, disposal and recycling of thinners and oils etc. Though I was expecting to find something on airbrushing. Nonetheless I will definitely be keeping this one!

Finishing/Jewitt

What a gem! Jeff Jewitt says this book should be on the work bench with the stains and sawdust but it is too lavish a production for that treatment. With its great color photos, explanatory diagrams and practical hints it should be an essential guide for anyone interested in obtaining the best finish on woodwork, whether natural oil, lacquer, French polish or other alternatives.

While not specifically for musical instrument finishing it has a wealth of information on tools & equipment, surface preparation and finishing techniques which apply to any woodwork project. It's written in an easy style, with a nice mix of theory and practical know-how and is easy to navigate with cross-referencing to other sections of the book. Great value for money.
