Im interested in trying a test within different brands and styles of finishes to see what is and is not compatible with each other. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. Ive already got a pretty good idea of things I would like to try but If im going to do a test I might as well do a bunch of different styles

Sklerp this may help. Bob’s books may be available through your local library or library regional system, if not Amazon has his books.

This is the industry standard reference book we used for my former undergrad coatings program. Again your library system may be able to locate it for you perusal.

Agree with both of the above. No sense repeating what is already known fact. Flexner’s book is the best reference I’ve found. Jeff Jewitt, Great Wood Finishes, is also good to have – has additional methods and techniques
