It looks great on maple drawer sides. I leave mine natural color, and the clear Shellac Bullseye Sealcoat by Zinsser is just the ticket.

It is also a great intermediate step in Jeff Jewitt’s stain-over dye technique.

Thin Sealcoat 50/50 with denatured alcohol for a perfect pre-stain conditioner on blotch prone woods like cherry.

I still prefer sprayed lacquer as my primary furniture finish (more durable, sprays better).
