Spring is in the air and it’s time to start getting out the outdoor furniture and decorations. If they’re made of wood, you’ll want to be sure they’re protected from the elements before you put them out for the summer. Wood left bare will gray from the sun, begin cracking and change shape; twisting, cupping or warping as moisture moves in and out of the wood. Some woods handle the elements better than others but ultimately they will all succumb.
Have you heard about the new way to refinish furniture and cabinets? You can avoid the messy, difficult and time consuming task of first stripping your piece down to bare wood. Instead, with this technique you only need to lightly sand the surface and then coat it with a dark gel stain that covers the surface in uniform color. The color is solid but the grain texture will still show through.
One of the most difficult parts of woodworking comes after all the cutting, shaping and sanding is done. Getting a good finish on your project is critical. The main criteria in selecting a product are that the finish provides the right visual / tactile effect and that it protects the wood.
