What is "hair cloth or curled hair"?
I bought a reprint of a book on Mission Furniture by H. H. Windsor a while back. The original articles were written 100 years ago. In the instructions for finishing some of the items the author talks about rubbing the finishes with "hair cloth or curled hair". Does any one know what these items might be called today?
Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
