    this is going to be an odd question

    regarding finishing, i remember either reading an article or seeing an episode of woodworks/new yankee workshop where the wood was rubbed with acetone prior to finishing. why is this done/when is it necessary? or am i just confused?

    Rev. Ed is right. You can, however, rub some mineral spirits on your project before finishing. It does two things----first cleans any dust and oils (from your hands) off the wood. Also, you can check for any remaining glue splotches that show up, before you stain and start saying nasty words.

    I think your referring to the episode were Norm was making something from teak. Teak has a lot of oil and to get a good glue joint and/or for some finishes to stick you need to first wipe off the surface oil.
