I'm going to build a fancy checker set for my grandfather.
I think this is a good project for me to try my hand with shellac. I've
read lots of stuff about shellac, but I don't know where any of my books
Can I expect to buy something acceptable at one of the Borgs, or am I going
to have to mail order from some place fancy? I can't ever remember seeing
anything other than lacquer and poly at the Borgs, but maybe I wasn't
looking in the right place.
I haven't graduated to making a real board yet, so I will probably do
another one of my cheater kerf jobs in the interest of getting this done
while my grandfather still has enough of his wits about him to appreciate
the thing. This technique involves stain, which I know everyone hates.
I did the last board with some old Minwhacks stuff. I got it done, and it
looks pretty decent, but I'd like to try my hand with a better quality
stain this go round. What do the Borgs sell that's worth looking for, that
works well under shellac?
