Oh and if anyone knows how to stop the tote on my no 5 from turning black when I try to apply any kind of finish I would love to hear it. Here it is after I applied a coat of shellac (disclaimer: it’s zinsser clear shellac and I know that real stuff is much better) and then after I sanded it down again with some 220.

I’d love to get some of the red back. It had a nice color before I did some repair and reshaping.

The tote is probably a 110 years old and I know age really plays a part with rosewood.
