Handicrafts

Handicrafts are devices or works of art that are made completely by hand or by the use of relatively simple tools. Such goods are usually made in the traditional way of manufacturing goods. Therefore, the knowledge of the art of craft is usually passed down from one generation to another. The items made using these traditional methods of manufacturing are usually produced in smaller quantities and they often represent the culture or religious beliefs of the community that makes them. The goods are also handmade from natural materials that are found in the environment of the particular economy.

Adding The Final Touch

The Final TouchSummary: Artists can find a home working with many different mediums. Some of excel at cake work. Others excel at music.

Artists can find a home working with many different mediums. Some of excel at cake work. Others excel at music. Still others excel at natural mediums such stone or woodworking. Regardless of the chosen medium, one step connects all artists. The final touch signifies to the artist as well as those who wish to view the piece that it is in fact complete.  As one would expect the types of finishes are as varied as the types of mediums. For example a woodworker may choose from the following list of wood finishing techniques.

Green

In this instance the term green is not referring to the color, but rather the movement. Going green and keeping things as environmentally friendly as possible is important to many people these days. Woodworkers who prefer to follow this line of thinking have some options available to them.  These include Low VOC stains. They can be especially helpful if there is any health concerns present, such as pregnant women or others who should not be exposed to toxic fumes.

Varnish

Perhaps one of the most common, traditional types of finishes is the use of a varnish. By adding a coat of varnish to the project, the woodworker will be able to project their project from both water and sun damage. 

For example, if you are building a custom picnic table for you and your family to enjoy you are going to want to apply varnish before anyone uses the table. This way you know that it will have a better chance of withstanding normal wear and tear as well as the weather.

Stain

Staining wood is another very popular way of finishing your projects. It is a permanent finish though so be sure that you are working with your desired color. When working with stain make sure to protect your hands and eyes.  Before applying the product to your entire project test it out on a piece of scrap wood. You want to make sure you like the look before taking on your finished piece!

Waxes 

Final touchAdding a wax based finish to your project will give it a clear but perfect shine.  It will also protect your project from water. Note this type of finish should only be used for indoor projects.  When applying the product be sure to use a lint free cloth. Once the wax is applied and dried you will also want to apply a sealer.

Woodworkers, like any artist, take pride in their finished pieces. Choosing the right type of wood finishing product will ensure that your piece survives for many years to come.
