Finishing wood surfaces can be tricky and time-consuming, and all that effort and time may not yield the beautiful product envisioned at the start. Great Wood Finishes is written by an expert in the field to help the occasional finisher/refinisher or hobbyist woodworker avoid that problem. The book uses simple instructions and a wealth of illustrations to make the process easy and rewarding.

Great Wood Finishes begins with a thorough discussion of tools and materials. It moves on to instructions and photo essays covering every technique, including staining, glazing, and rubbing out. The final section, primarily photos and captions, covers specialty finishes that can easily be created by combining the techniques presented earlier in the book.

It's a good reference book. Very picture-heavy. I dislike the pages with little to no information, gives it a magazine feel. It could be more compact. The book has nice technical mini-sections on light reflection, wood pores, and color theory.

It's good if you're trying to pick which finish to go for. The book has a bit of everything, but doesn't really go into depth.
