Interesting question - it all begins with surface preparation.

I like a good layer of spam on top.

My experience has been that if I mess up any of the steps, it's gonna show.
Some worse than others.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

The most important step in refinishing is to make sure everything is clean, and that all the things You will use are close at hand. If Your piece, and the area isn't prepared correctly, You probably going to be unhappy with Your work. In My world, if i am not sure that I can go from start to finish without making changes in plans, I'll mess up.

The most important step in a fine finish is taking your time from beginning to end. No shortcuts, no mistakes, no compromises.

The second you start rushing or taking shortcuts, that is when your work will suffer.


Just remember what my father always said, " Half the people in this world are below average!", and everything in life will make a hellova lot more sense.
