The purpose of furniture finish

There is more to furniture surface finish than protection. That extra (potential) factor has the potential of being the most important quality of the furniture. Finishing of furniture is the last process and can make or break the validity if the piece as a desirable possession.  No matter what efforts or talents went into the process of designing and constructing a table, a chair, a chest or any piece of furniture if the end process, the finishing,  failed to carry forth the same principals all is lost!
