First off, I'll apologise for not following normal newsgroup netiquette of
reading a group for a while before posting. I've only just subscribed and
don't have the luxury of spending time reading because of husband set time
constraints and I need some advice please.
My husband has a 1933 car that he has been restoring with some help from me
and has finally reached the stage where the dahboard needs to be installed
and, after considerable discussion and doing some tests, he wants it to be
French Polished using Golden Shellac. He doesn't want the high shine of the
modern 3 pack industrial finishes an dhe wants the surface to be able to be
restored renovated easily if needs be.
I'll do the French Polishing as I've done it several times before on antique
Dining tables and achieved a good outcome.
So, I know how to do it, have done it in the past, but it's been about 2
years since the last time I did it and I can't currently find my book that
I refer to when I've tackled this job in the past. I can't remember if I
have rubbed back between each coat using steel wool (wire wool).
Can anyone who is experienced in traditional French Polishing please give me
Thanks for you time.
