BTW - O'Deen turned over the shellac thing to someone in Ohio.
don't know if it's still the same people, but Shellac.net is still
around - with the same selection of shellacs plus some shellac
related stuff. I've run out of dewaxed garnet and almost out
of Platina. Guess it's time to order some more - hopefully
packaged in stronger baggies. I LOVE shellac - the grinding,
mixing, stirring - WAITING - shaking and swirling the mason jar
and then discovering the lid isn't on quite tight enough, ...
And when the wait is almost over, almost because I always
want to use it before it's really completely ready. Then the
Shellac Miracle as the first - and the next ten coats - take
the wood from "interesting" to "WOW!"
ANYWAY, you can still get shellac flakes from in case you're
going through shellac withdrawl and the In The Can stuff just
ain't good enough.
