Finishing for the chair.
 
The chair has unique shape and can be designed to showcase in the best shape in a design collection. The chair has small parts of: arms, legs and backrest that can be made in special form and decorative theme, and then it can be finished to enhance its beauty and unique shape..
The finishing for the chair generally is easier than the finishing for desk or cabinet. It has small surface that makes the application finishing materials can be done easier. Some small damage and imperfectness will not be looked too obvious as the large and wide surfaces at table or cupboard.
But the finishing materials used still have to accord to the function of the chair. The exterior finishing materials such as: PU outdoor or spar varnish is required for outdoor chair. The indoor chair can be finished with the NC, shellac, or furniture varnish. The NC finishing is my favorite since it is relatively easy to be applied and   be able to maximally enhance the beauty and unique of the chair.
Unlike tables that are used to put stuff and be stricken lot of activity, the chair relatively get less physical abused. But however, the strong finishing such as PU or AC is still needed for the chair that facing hard activities such as chair for hotel, bar and cafe.
