Finishing, Simply Put ...no chemistry degree required" by Charles Neil in the mail. Weirdest thing happened: I read the first 120 pages right after sitting down with it. Finished the book the next night. Not often a book on finishing keeps me glued to a seat.
Here's a link to a PDF of the table of contents.
This is a self-published book so you won't find it popping up on your usual woodworking radar so I thought to give it some attention.
