Wood Finishing Workshops Announce Summer Schedule
Wood Finisher TV http://woodfinisher.tv announced today the spring, summer, and fall wood finishing workshop schedules in historic Waynesville, North Carolina, which is nestled in The Great Smoky Mountains, just minutes from Asheville, North Carolina.
Ray Whitmer, one of the nations most experienced and acclaimed master wood finishers, will host the weekend wood finishing workshops which will begin on June 5, 2009.
Ray’s extensive resume includes the restoration of President Ulysses S. Grant’s home and furnishings, finishing and wood care at the Biltmore Mansion in Asheville, restoration of America’s oldest Inn “The Golden Lamb”, finishing and decorative finishes in many of the top 4 and 5 star restaurants around the nation, restoration of several historic homes and buildings on the National Registry, restoration of finishes and wood damages to furniture for several museums, restoration and finishing in Churches and Cathedrals around the nation, extensive yacht finishing for Palmer Johnson Yachts, Lazzaro Yachts, Trinity Yachts, Wind Dancer Yachts, and private yacht owners.
Ray also authored Whitmer’s Guide to Creative Finishes in 1980 which sold tens of thousands of copies through three printings.
The Old World finishes, Old World finishing techniques, restoration procedures and techniques, and the tricks of the trade that Ray teaches are generations old and brought to this country in 1733 by his German ancestors who were furniture builders and finishers. Such wood finishing and restoration skills are very rare today and becoming more so each and everyday.
Each two day workshops will include hands on instruction in staining and finishing of new wood, repairing damaged finishes, restoration of existing finishes, refinishing of wood and furniture, Old World finishes, Old World finishing techniques, French padding, and more. Each weekend workshop will be limited to 6 attendees so that Ray can spend as much time one on one as possible.
