Re: UPDATE:French Polishing: Finishing and restoring using traditional techniques by Derek Jones

I own and operate an antiques and fine furniture restoration/conservation shop and get an ocassional request for french polish finishes. My issue is the time required to build a French polish finish. Most of my clientelle are simply not willing to pay for the level of effort required. Shellac is a beautiful finish but not very durable so given highcost and low strength I don't do a lot of shellac finishes. I do however use it as a base coat sealer on all my restoration projects as it has proven to be the absolute best sealer for contaminated surface which I see a lot of.
