  • The ONLY wood that I will paint is poplar or birch as they have no distinguishable grain....I have to hold my tongue on many of these projects as all anybody wants to do is press the "easy" button and paint. I had to refrain from making a negative comment on a MAHOGANY dresser that was "Glass Painted" ? had cedar drawers and dovetailed joints, heirloom quality to start and not anymore....!!!!!

      Hello, i have a question to you as a professional... I am the beginner... but like wood as it is... So, i bought a dining table and 6 hairs back to 70th.. Already sanded chairs, primedthem for the next painting... as they were not in a good condition. But the table looks much more better and it has a huzelnut ( not sure, just think it is!) venner. I used the painter and used that special chemists to remove the vanish. But i was faiked,,, it was not removes as i wanted. So, started to sand and the sand paper 220 doesn't remove that scretches i already made with the snadpaper of 60.... Any advice? Appreciate all as i want to finish this project and to move further in work with wood. Sorry for my English. Lydia, Belarus
