    Shellac and French polishing are great traditional finishes that are experiencing a revival among woodworkers. They're easy to apply, forgiving, and generally more natural and less toxic then some of the more modern finishing materials. And unlike some of the products that turned me off in the 70's and 80's - cheap, not pure and probably way past their sell dates - premium shellac is one of the great finishes around. Whether you mix up your own shellac from flakes or use our pre-mixed shellac finishes and French polish, you will be really pleased with the results.
