One Editor’s Foolproof Finish
Beautifies, protects, wipes on, dries quickly, enough said
This medium-luster, in-the-wood finish never fails to give good results. You first seal the wood with shellac, then apply three or more coats of gel varnish, and complete the finish with a coat of paste wax. Mark Schofield takes you through the steps that will give you a finish that protects and beautifies without fuss.
