Whether the finished piece looks good or Iooks like something trom a rummage sale depends on the time and care you put into the job. You don't iiave to have the skill of a cabinetmaker. First of all, make certain you know what you are getting. Don't assume that the furniture i3 sold assembled. There are instances where it is sold unassembled. Particularly mail orders.. If you are not handy with hammer and screw driver, buy something that is already put together. If you must assemble it, check the instructions carefully. Make certain you have all the pieces. Pick the best surfaces and make sure they will end up on the outside. Most assembly calls for finishing nails and glue. Some require screws.' Work accordingly. If using nails, set the nail heads. This means driving the nail head slightly below the wood surface and it is done with a tool known as a nail set. Fill the slight hole with wood filler and sand when dry. Unfinished furniture may feel smooth and ready to finish but it isn't. It must be sanded. Use fine sandpaper, starting with No. 210 and ending with 410. Wipe away all sawdust with a tack cloth or a rag dampened with turpentine. Finishing should be started on the inside surfaces, then move to outside surfaces. Remove all knobs and handles before you start. Do those separately. ' If you paint, use enamel. It's durable and can be washed. These features make it ideal for kitchen and child's room furniture. Use an undercoat and brush wjth the grain. After drying and before applying the finish coat, sand lightly. Natural finishes are desirable because they show off the wood grain. Your choices are lacquer, shellac and varnish. A stain will darken the wood and should be applied first. Pick the shade you want, anything from light oak or maple to dark mahogany, and apply. Brush on and wipe off quickly with rags. How deep the color becomes depends on how long you allow the stain to stand before wiping. Control by applying thinly. When staining is finished, rub down with clean cloths, then with very fine steel wool. Clean away any residue from the steel wool. Shellac is the easiest to handle, varnish a little harder but more durable and lacquer the most difficult and the most dur able of all. Fast drying lacquers are hard to brush on. Spraying is best.

Toronto Star Syndicate) Growing earlier tomatoes Few gardening pleasures can match the enjoyment of being the first on the block to pick j ripe tomatoes, and there's many a good gardener who feels he's a miserable failure if he doesn't pick his first sun-ripened tomato by July 4. Choosing the right varieties is important, since tomatoes are generally classified as early, midseason or late. When buying seed, read the color packet or the catalog description to see how many days are required to reach maturity. An early variety will average 60 days from setting out foot-high plants - and that means starting the seed indoors another 45 days ahead of transplanting to get the required size plants -preferably with flowers already blooming. Of course, tomatoes are very sensitive to frost, and they should not be put into the garden until danger of frost is over, but if you're tempted to risk an earlier start, make sure they have some protection from cold nights. Hybrids will also give you better chance of reaching that early-ripening date, since they have stronger vigor and greater productivity. Another booster is to use black plastic as mulch. It keeps the soil warm, maintains an even soil temperature. It also conserves water and keeps down weeds. Once you've tried black plastic you'll never raise tomatoes without it. A fertile soil is another must, and a general-purpose fertilizer should be applied at least twice during the growing season - when the plants are first set outside; and when the fruit has started to form. Disease - resistant tomatoes are also more likely to produce early results, and these are identified by .the initials, VF, meaning Verticillium and Fu-sarium Wilt resistant, the most common tomato diseases. Follow these guidelines, and there's a good chance you will be the first on your block to pick ripe fruit LAUNDRY DETERGENT 5-lb. net wt. (King size) pkg.
