Oil Finishing By Hand

with Todd Pate

Tuesday, August 13, 5:30 PM - 8 PM

More than an afterthought, more than simply preservation and protection, finishing is THE step that takes you from project to masterpiece. There is no better compliment to a fine functioning piece of woodwork than a deep, rich oil finish that is also easy to maintain. In this class, students will learn how hand rubbed oil finishes enhance both the beauty and livelihood of wood, a brief history of finishing, demonstrations of several brands and types of finishes, and the student will leave with a hardwood trivet (or cutting board?) with one coat of the finish of their choice and the know-how not only to keep it beautiful, but also to nourish the beauty as the years go by. Woodwork only gets more beautiful over time when hand rubbed oil finishes are used.
