I have taken Mitch Konahek classes on finishing and Kelley Mehers class
on building a chest of drawers. They were taught at the Woodworking
Show. In the past classes lasted all day. They now last a morning and
that is too short. If you take the wood finishing class you need to
take both days of classes to get what was taught in one day. Mitch's
class finally cleared up for my all the mysteries of finishing and was
worth every penny of what I spent. This is true even though I had
bought several books on finishing.
