If you don't know where to begin with a finish, Dresdner will give you clear instruction on three easy-to-use and practical finishes: wax, polyurethane, and wax over shellac. He covers surface preparation, including steaming out dents with water or alcohol, filling gouges, the differences between closed-coat and open-coat sandpaper, and when to use aluminum oxide or garnet abrasives. He also explains the pros and cons of conventional, turbine-powered HVLP and HVLP conversion spray systems, and shows how to build a cardboard spray booth that folds up and stores away nicely.

This is a collection of three previously released short videos, Starting to Finish, Three Simple Finishes, and Spray Basic, re-issued in DVD format.

Length: 65 minutes.
