Finishing of wood requires careful planning to ensure that the finished piece looks attractive, performs well in service and meets safety and environmental requirements. Choosing finishing begins with the design of furniture. Wood finishing involves thinking about the properties of the wood that you are going to buy, as these can greatly affect the appearance and performance of finishes, and also the type of finishing system that will give the wood the characteristics you are seeking. Wood’s that are coarse textured such oaks and other ring-porous hardwoods may need to be filled before they are finished to ensure the coating can bridge the pores and resist cracking. The pores in ring porous woods preferentially absorb pigmented stain and advantage can be taken of this to highlight the wood’s grain.
