French Polishing

French polishing is a technique for wooden furniture that results in a high gloss, deep colour and tough surface. It consists of applying many think coats of shellac using a rubbing pad. A lengthy and repetitive process, the finish is obtained through a specific combination of different rubbing motions (generally circles and figure of eights), waiting for considerable time, building up layers of polish and then spiriting off any streaks that remain on the surface.

Contact me to discuss any French polishing requirements you have.
