Review:

Wood Finishing with George Frank was first published in 1988 and is considered one of the great classics in the field of wood finishing. Now, bestselling writer Sam Allen has updated Frank's classic with the latest innovations and techniques, bringing this ultimate manual to a new level of excellence. Frank himself was a bit of a classic: a renowned finisher and innovator, he invented the techniques of French polishing to create a final finish of silken beauty and depth. He produced commissioned work for the Louvre and other world-renowned museums and private collections, and transformed the techniques of wood finishing into a true art form.

This revised and updated version of Frank's original book will soon be omnipresent in the workshops of serious woodworkers everywhere, gradually becoming covered with sawdust and sticky fingerprints from the constant use by woodworkers trying to produce the finest finishes on new and restored wood. They will find recipes and techniques for, and an in-depth explanation of, French polishing--for the most beautiful finish on woodworking projects of any kind. This is the definitive manual of wood finishing. --Mark A. Hetts
