This book is a big help!!

For those of us OCD about our final step in a project, this will definitely help your varnishing efforts. It’s easy to read, put it down and pick it up again never loosing interest. This will help anyone regardless of skill level.

James Sandison

This booklet would be greatly improved with a number of pictures describing some of the techniques. Just pictures of rope work to sell does not add to the booklet

Robert C Phelps

The items I ordered arrived in perfect shape
In 3 or 4 day from start to finish
The book is great

Tim Lemon
Fantastic resource!

Not the basics, but should be required reading for any aspiring finisher or pro boatbuilder. Definitely a multiple read reference text.

John Kime

Poorly done!
