finishing survey
« on: February 18, 2010, 10:42:48 AM »
Hi all       I was taking to a few friends about meetings and the topic of finishing was brought up. What we would like to know is,#1--- How many people would be interested in a meeting dedicated to finishing?  #2--- What you are doing now to finish your work? #3--- How many yrs you have been woodworking?  #4--- what you would like to learn{prep,types of finish,repair,etc}?  #5--- And in your mind, how long it takes one to learn the task you are interested in?
 And any other comments you might have.                                 In the SAPFM statistics, finishing is #2 in visits.Thanks for your input.   Randy

1) $cnt++; or said differently, increment the counter for me.
2) die, shellac, glaze
3) ~15 years
4) patination / aging techniques
5) somewhere between 1 day and infinity depending on the particular task at hand
