Reviews: Good Woodworking July 2011 issue:
Graco EasyMax Pro paint sprayer
"Say goodbye to blocked nozzles with this gun" See full review
. Note renamed from MINIMAX.
Enduro-VAR 5 star rating by Good Woodworking: "Each piece had four coats applied with a foam pad, which gave excellent results" See full review.

Review: Good Woodworking December '10 issue, Fuel for the winter Firewood Box by Phil Davy, Consultant Editor. "I finished the box with three coats of General Finishes Milk Paint, choosing Brick Red for winter warmth, which definitely has a New England feel about it. The great thing about this finish is that you don’t need a primer or undercoat on softwood, though this is recommended if using MDF." See full Firewood Box project (reproduced with kind permission).

Review: Good Woodworking June '09 issue, "General Finishes Milk Paints may not be cheap, but I was impressed by their coverage & ease of application". See review and mini project. Issue also features a review of the Scottish Woodworking show "Taking its place as the king of the new products was General Finishes"

Review: Ian Taylor in The Woodworker, August 2007 builds a Country-Style table and uses General Finishes Milk Paints and Water Based Top Coat to create a distressed finish. "The process worked very well, and for a first attempt I was pleased with it. I’ll definitely try it again – a matching pine storage chest has been added to my future projects list. There’s a wide range of options with this finish." See full review pdf.

Review: The Woodworker, March 2007. Review of range, testing High Performance, Arm-R-Seal (NLA) and Gel Stain. "Pros: High quality and big range. Cons: Not yet available in the shops. Recommended". See full review pdf. See stockists above!

Review: Water Based High Performance rated "Author's Best Overall Choice" by Fine Woodworking Magazine Nov / Dec 2006. Trade enquires, please see our Trade page.
