Hello, my name is Jeff Alger.
I'm taking a Master's class in Instructional Design at Boise State University. My group's project is to develop training that teaches people how to strip the wood trim inside their house and ready it for refinishing (I'm not kidding, that's our actual project!). The first step we have to do is find out why people don't refinish their own interior trim. So, we developed a survey to find out.Can I ask the DIYers on this board to take a couple minutes and answer the following questions? Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.
Do you know how to prepare wood trim for refinishing?
If so, where did you learn how to do it?
trial and error
Have you ever refinished wood trim or furniture before?
If you wanted to refinish the trim in your house, would you consider doing it yourself?
I would replace it
If not, what would you say the biggest barrier to doing it yourself was?
The biggest barrier to refinishing is obvious...restarting!!!
Socially unacceptable, Politically incorrect!
