When it comes to wood finishes, it’s hard to find a company larger than the Minwax-Thompson company. Their products can be found nearly everywhere you can purchase wood finishing products.
The Minwax line is very extensive, including oil and water based stains and finishes, brushable lacquers, wood fillers and many other specialty products.
The site is easy to navigate, and has links to step-by-step instructions, free plans for wood projects and a gallery of ideas which may spark your own designs. The site also features an interactive wood finishing forum, a newsletter and a user submitted project showcase.
