French Polishing

Quick Overview

One of the most beautiful ways to finish wood, French polishing is virtually unique in that polish applied today will adhere to polish first applied a hundred years ago.

This no-nonsense guide to the process of applying layers of shellac to create a high-gloss surface includes all you need to know from choosing materials and setting up your workshop to preparing the surface and applying the finish. A section on resolving common problems and helpful tips.

Whether you are an accomplished woodworker or a novice this book will lead you through the history of French polishing and then explain, in a straightforward way, how to carry out the process. 112 pages. 209 Colour Photographs.
