Re: [APD] Goldfish, etc

As a woodworking hobbiest I am always semi-offended to  hear that a 
nice wood stand is being painted, and not being given a finish that 
lets the beauty of the natural wood show.  It takes far less skill to 
apply a stain and clear finish than it does to apply a painted finish 
with speckled pattern.  (Should I now say that I consider wood to be a 
living being, entitled to all the respect given to other living beings, 
including humans?)
