DasHorneston, It's clear that you already know it all and are simply wasting your time reaing this forum. Perhaps there is another that might be directed towards some of your "professional" caliber.
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.
This wart has gotta go!
All too familiar - I use wax paper.
