Author Bob Flexner has been a contributing editor to Popular Woodworking Magazine
for more than a decade, and is among the most respected experts on wood finishing and refinishing. He's taught countless finishing classes, served as editor of the trade magazine for professional refinishers, written for more than a dozen magazines and is author of the best-selling Understanding Wood Finishing, which revolutionized how the subject is taught. Bob got his start 30+ years ago, when he opened a one-man shop to build and restore furniture, and was unable to find accurate information on finishes. So he dove headlong into the study of finish technology and created the information himself. While he still restores and builds furniture, his primary focus is now on investigating all things finishing, from traditional techniques to modern methods and products.
