finishing book?

Can anyone recommend a good finishing book? I'm looking for one that covers how-to's on everything from lacquer to poly to danish oil. Thanks in advance, Kevin

Finishing Books

Hi Boxer,
One book which may be of interest to you would be "Great Wood Finishes", By Jeff Jewitt. Published by Taunton Press.

Lots of Luck.

I have both and, while both are great books, I find myself going to Flexner's more often to get a question answered.

Thanks for the replies. I was referred to both of these books by someone on another site, also. Looks like I'll be getting these this week.
Thanks again, Kevin

I've had Flexner's for years but have never read it. Let me know how it is so I can determine whether or not I should make time to read it. :D
