Demonstration on Finishing Solutions and Fixes Featured for 2016 NIWA Expo

December 17, 2015

A seminar about improved technology for hardwood finishing touch-up solutions will be featured at the Northern Indiana Woodcrafters Association (NIWA) Expo, February 29 and March 1, 2016 at the Michiana Event Center in Howe, Indiana.

The seminar will be provided by Mike Todd, Interpretive Design Engineer for FinishWorks, based in Shipshewana, Indiana.

Todd will show how the hard-fill method by Mohawk Finishing Products offers hardwood furniture retailers, manufacturers and suppliers an easier and more satisfactory approach to fixing scratches and blemishes that might occur on hardwood finishes and that requires an efficient fix.

Todd will provide demonstrations and offer additional support materials and education.

“This information is a good fit for Expo participants,” Todd says, “because this hard-fill technique for finishes is adaptable, flexible, fast and easy for anyone to know and use.”

The Northern Indiana Woodcrafters Association is an association made up of over 80 furniture builders that sell and wholesale to retailers across the United States and Canada. The NIWA Expo is an invitation-only two-day event with exhibits, dealer participation, training, education, fellowship and product showcases.
