    Hi folks,

    Haven't posted in a bit...haven't worked on the current projects in a bit either, but that's another story. At any rate, hope all have had good holidays!

    At any rate, with the influx of Christmas cash, I'm considering placing a tool order, and was also thinking about getting a solid book on wood finishes. LMII carries one called The New Woodfinishing Book by Michael Dresdner. The Amazon link is here . My question is this: has anyone seen or used this book? Is it worth the money, or should I look elsewhere?

    Thanks for your input!

    If you want a really thorough book, pick up Tauntons complete Illustrated Guide To Finishing. It covers just about anything you'll ever want to know.
