Jason Bedre's Curvis Sedes II Chair finished with General Finishes Endurovar Endurovar Professional Waterbase Topcoat from General Finishes We love all things Jason Bedre!

We love all things Jason Bedre! One of his chairs, "Curvis Sedis II," is particularly memorable. It's got complex joinery of interlocking dovetails, as well as spline dovetails, a covered seat that's tapered to the edge, and a frame made of bent laminations. "It was a real test of seeing how far I could go, and push the limits of what I could do, to make it. I was sort of challenging myself, I guess," Jason said. This was Jason's entry in the Texas Furniture Makers Show in 2012 - beauty in every detail!.

Restoration Hardware Bed Chest Refinished in Nutmeg Gel Stain

Refinished with Nutmeg Gel Stain by General Finishes. Woodworkers love the lustrous finish that emerges when rubbing out the 2nd and 3rd coats. Gel Stains are formulated to produce a durable & beautiful "hand-rubbed" finish and are heavy-bodied, so they do not penetrate as deeply as liquid oilbase stains.
