RPF101C21 Repairing the Finish
March, 6 - March, 7 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM$320
While learning to finish is a critical skill for any furniture maker, the art of repairing a finish is just as important — and can be useful for non-woodworkers, too.
Whether you’re ready to apply a new finish to a refurbished piece, or you want to repair damage to a beloved heirloom, Tom Licurgo is here to help.
A master finisher, Tom has specialized in finishing repair for many years and is ready to share his secrets over two action-packed days.
Scratches, scrapes, burns, water marks, dog chewed legs, sun-faded discolorations… Tom has seen it all and more.
Whether you want to learn to repair damage or create a finish that will withstand the test of time, this is the workshop for you!
You will learn how to:
- repair scratches
- repair gouges
- match color
- repair missing wood
- adjust color or tone
- adjust sheen
- and much more!
