As far as the shellac, its the mixed Zinsser stuff you get from the big box. I believe its a 3/1? Next step is to get flakes and mix my own.

The gloss stays pretty well. I should re-mount and put a few more coats on. The smaller was a heavily spalted Pecan with some punky bits in it, the other mesquite. Both are sanded down to 600 but I would like to go finer than that.

Technically is supposedly food safe but I’ve heard different opinions on that. I wouldn’t eat my cereal out of it. The finish sets up pretty hard.
