WOOD finishing today is a commercial art. With the greater
appreciation of interior decoration by the great middle classes has
come the realization that interior wood trim constitutes the frame of
the picture, so to speak. Consequently the selection of color and
texture of the finish for wood trim is being done with the same care
that is exercised by the artist who chooses a frame for his painting.
The tendency to consider the wood finishing in homes and public
buildings simply as one element of a decorative scheme, along with
the several others, such as walls, floor, furniture, drapes, rugs and
accessories, is a wholesome development which is making interiors
The wood finisher, whether he be house painter and decorator,
furniture worker or arts and crafts artisan, is confronted with an array
of finishes calculated to confuse even the most experienced unless his
working methods are based upon a sound knowledge of the most
modern stains, fillers, varnishes and other materials.
Then there has
been a steady change in the kinds and grades of woods used for
buildings, cabinets and furniture, calling for complete knowledge of the
characteristics of present day woods.
And to make the wood finisher's task even more difficult the
specifications by architects and customers change constantly to keep
pace with styles in furniture and decorations of standard, period and
novel designs. The wish is always for something new and different.
So the wood finisher must keep up with the procession in pursuit of
style and vogue.
The matter of cost of producing finishes is usually the controlling
factor, especially when surfaces to be finished are very large or are
many times repeated, as when made up of hundreds of rooms in large
office, hotel or similar structures. Then the cost of an extra coat or an
extra sanding of the surface, for instance, may mean the difference
between profit or loss on the job.
In this book the author has aimed to discard the old and obsolete
materials and methods which are too costly in labor to be practical in
this day of high wage scales. Only such materials and methods have
been cited as are equal to present day demands for both practical and
