This is a traditional oak dining set for my daughter.  It was finished with G/F Pecan Oil Stain and Satin Arm-R-Seal – 4-5 coats with the exception of the table top.  I used Old Masters paste grain filler after the stain, then 8 coats of Arm-R-Seal.

Porch Glider

Here is a picture of a porch Glider that I finished several weeks ago. It was finished with General Finishes water based Golden Oak stain and General Finishes water based High Performance Polyurethane, gloss. The wood is all Red Oak. There were rubber pads glued to the bottom of the feet with silicon adhesive, to protect the wood on a concrete surface.

Collectors Cane Finished in Wood Turners Finish

Here is the Wood Turners Finish on one of my canes. Mesquite Shaft, Kingwood handle, Turquoise inlay and Brass collar and Ferrule. All exotic hardwoods, hand made...turned, sanded, inlayed, and finished. Just purchased by a collector. Beautiful finish and the WTF went on easily. I think I've found a new supplier. Feel free to use this pic if you wish. It's the least I can do for you turning me on this finish. (No pun intended)   Thank you again for your courtesy.

Glazed Coffee Table Finished With Red & Black Milk Paint From General Finishes

The table is built from poplar. There are two coats of Lamp Black, two of High Performance Water Based Top Coat, two coats of Red Pepper Milk Paint sanded through to show some of the black. Then Van Dyke Brown Glaze was applied. The whole piece was finished with  High Performance Top Coat using an hvlp sprayer. The pictures do not show enough definition but it is by far the best finish I have ever done.  Thanks for your great service and fabulous water base finishes!
