Showcase cover image for Purpleheart Bracelet

Project Information

A small bracelet made of some scrap purpleheart. Finished with a quick coat of BLO, followed immediately by a coat of 2 lb. cut shellac and about 2 more coats of shellac afterwards. Then a couple coats of General Finishes arm-r-seal, follow by some beeswax to give it some shine.

Great looking bracelet. From the finishing steps, it should stand up to a lot of wear.

Yeah, it should. I got the idea of BLO under shellac for Fine Woodworking, but I don't really like shellac as a top coat so I just put some varnish on top.
