Shellac Finishes

We are asked often about the finish we use on the furniture we make.  Royal-Lac, Seal-Lac and Shellac.  Royal-Lac is a modified shellac that has the same durability as varnish but it is matched with the same overall clarity and working characteristics of Shellac.  These characteristics are un-matched by other modern finishes (In our opinion).  On top of that they just came out with an Aerosol version of Royal-Lac that is very easy to apply and levels beautifully. A professionally sprayed finish in a can.   If you have any questions about this product do not hesitate to call the company, Vijay the owner answered all of our questions when we first started using Shellac Finishes products.

Old Brown Glue

A terrific product we use that is non toxic/organic, has superior strength,  great working characteristics, and importantly, a commonly overlooked feature is that it is reversible. Along with this they are a great company, they will help you with any questions about there product and importantly it is made in their shop in the USA.
