Hire a Wood Finisher

 

Wood furniture brings a unique charm and organic aesthetic. It exudes history and rawness that brings character and style to a space. Just like any other material, however, wood furniture can chip, fade, or be damaged as time passes. While throwing them away may be an option for some, most people will hold on to wood furniture and have them restored. Thankfully, we can entrust this work to the capable hands of wood finishers. They are skilled individuals whose job is to revitalize, repair, and reinvigorate wood furniture and other wood products to a specific type of finish. 

In a way, wood finishers bring new life to wood products and furniture. With the use of different solvents and materials, it is amazing what a transformation they can bring to worn out wood. Wood finishers may work independently for clients or work for furniture manufacturers, wood suppliers, construction companies where they are commonly involved in the final stages of the building process where they apply sealants, finishes, and top coats to furniture. Wood finishers typically work indoors and where there is adequate light and ventilation. Hiring wood finishers means looking for individuals who are creative, reliable, and who enjoy creating with their hands. 

 

Responsibilities of a Wood Finisher

 

Wood finishers consult with clients and discuss the work needed. They carefully assess the extent of damage and recommend ideas for restoration or repair. Wood finishers take note of the client’s requests, finishing preferences, color, timeline, and budget. They would then prepare a cost estimate for the client’s approval.

Using different hand and power tools and materials, wood finishers disassemble the furniture and remove old finishes and any damaged components. They use sandpaper, stripping tools, and solvents. Wood finishers repair broken parts and any cracks or depressions in the wood are filled using glue or putty. According to the job specifications and type of wood, wood finishers mix ingredients to come up with the desired colors for coating. They manually paint, coat, spray, or use painting equipment to achieve the desired finish. At times, they may distress surfaces to create a more used or antique appearance. Before applying the final coat or sealant, wood finishers ask for the client’s feedback to make sure that they are satisfied and on the same page with the outcome. 

Wood finishers deal with solvents and other chemicals that might be hazardous. They are responsible for working according to all safety and health standards, wear personal protective gear as needed, and maintain a clean and organized working area. 

Skills and Qualifications of a Wood Finisher

A high school diploma or GED is typically required for the role. However, a certificate in woodworking technology is commonly required by employers. Previous work experience in the same role is an advantage. 

To be successful as a wood finisher, candidates must be creative and proficient in using hand and power tools and other woodworking equipment. Good manual dexterity and hand-eye coordination are essential. Because they consult with clients, wood finishers must have good interpersonal and communication skills. Listening to the client’s needs and feedback and responding appropriately are part of the job. Candidates must be willing to work in an environment where it can be dusty and noisy. The ability to stand for extended periods and lift or carry heavy objects are likewise essential.
