"Finally our table is done and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out! This gorgeous table was built by Patick Beck of Yorkville, IL.... I asked him to leave the table unfinished for me so that I could put my personal touch on it. I stained the table and bench in General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain and sealed with their Arm-R-Seal topcoat for super durability." - Nap Time Creations

"My signature tulip table done in with authentic aged rustic finish. Hand scraped then a dry brush effect using General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint and finished with their HP flat top coat. Felt more like a piece of art."- Dettorre Furniture

After cleaning decades of salt, oil, and grime off the wood, I left the surface in its natural state to show it's beautifully weathered and rugged profile." - Tobias Olsen of Cascade Pacific Woodworks   The following products to were to refinish this lovely project: Java Gel Stain, High Performance Topcoat, Driftwood Milk Paint, Argentine and Tawny Pearl Effects.

"I am very pleased to share with you all The Randall Rocker! The chair is made up of solid and bent wood laminations more than 170 pieces in all. For those who don't know, bent laminations are thinly sliced strips of wood. By making them thin they become pliable. They are then placed in a form with glue between layers and left overnight. Once cured the pieces are stronger than the original wood and very sturdy." - Fedor Woods   The Randall Rocker has been finished with General Finishes...

"This beautiful coastal dining set was originally just an ordinary table and chairs.  You know the type...orangey in color, out of style, ugly.  The top of the table was removed and I cut down different widths of wood planks to fit.  They were then sanded... and sanded some more.  Next I stained using a combination of General Finishes stains.  This combo is top secret, but I will reveal that Java, Brown Mahogany and Gray were used.  This gives the wood an old, weathered look.  I then dry...
