The use of shellac as a finish for wood and other materials geos back several hundreds of years, gaining real prominence as a furniture finish in the 1800′s. Shellac has many excellent qualities which render it a good choice for fine furniture and wooden objects even today. It is durable and repairable, easy to apply, rubs out nicely, has a very ‘hand friendly’ feel and a mellow appearance. Making furniture using Krenov’s methods, the finishing of most parts of any construction is completed prior to assembly, and that is the approach we undertake to learn in this class.
