Thanks Shy,I get that with his one and sometimes I think about lying and saying, Ya I used Finklesteins old number 8 amber shellac with schlomo's Kosher Denatured alcohol. The truth is I stripped it and stained with Min Wax Red Mahogany, Since this is a bubba I then used Tru Oil ,I quit counting a eight coats. Buffed with oooo steel wool between coats. After that it looked too glossy so I tried something, I rubbed it down with 1/3 Finn mix and it had a de-glossing effect while making it seem deeper. I have since used 1/3 mix on re-furbished shellac jobs, rubbed in right over the bumpy shellac and it will blend nicely.MN God thanks you for using a cheap one.
Did you re-do the shellac? If so, nice job for the deep red clolor. How many coats did that take to get that color? What cut and mix/flakes did you use?
