I've got a lot of rather stupid questions about my first woodworking projects (What are all these funny pores doing in the wood? How do I make them go away without making them look funny? And can I polish lacquer with a rotary buffer?), and, in the spirit of causing the more skilled members of this forum minimal annoyance, I figure I ought to "RTFM".
So, can anyone suggest anything along the line of "wood finishing for dummies?"
