Understanding Wood Finishing, by Bob Flexner

This is a great reference; it demystified about 85% of the subject. I'm not sure if I should blame Mr. Flexner for not getting me to 100%: perhaps I just need to re-read the book a couple times more.

Still, it made some things quite clear, and not clear: tung oil might really be called varnish, and it often might not even have any tung oil in it. There, that's helpful, right?
