Tips and tricks to finish your reclaimed wood projects like a professional
In this build I show you how to quickly up your game, and build better reclaimed wood furniture. With a few simple tools it is easy to go from “standard” to a professional grade finish. I talk about preparation, application, and finishing techniques. Check out the video below!

Featured Tools / Materials

Step 1: Prep the Surface

This stage is where you make your money. You're going to want to remove all of the dirt and grime from the wood. But you do not want to eliminate the saw marks and character. The trick is using the right tool. I recommend the Makita Brush Sander and/or anAngle Grinder with a Wire Wheel.
