Shellac with a topcoat of wax is great for shop furniture, trinkets, tools. For extra protection I wipe a couple coats of poly on.

I use blonde for a relatively clear finish. Platina would be better but I’m fine with a bit of yellow. If I want something to be a little darker or want the look of patina I’ll use garnet.

Super easy to use. I French polish with it mostly but also brush it on if I’m in a hurry.

A piece of furniture for decoration, for limited use, or for where it’s negatives don’t matter (like shop furniture) i find it best for.

I love the stuff.
