I'm working on a sofa table with a "Southwest" style. The style is somewhat
like the entertainment center I posted at abpw. (see sofa table)
It's made of Ponderosa Pine. I can't decide on what kind of finish I should
Shellac over oil or wax over oil.
It's not a table, it doesn't need to be enormously hard wearing. It
has large plain doors facing you, so you want to give the timber some
interest and depth (so use the oil first). If the timber is really
well figured, then go for wax over oil, otherwise shellac over oil.
Use blonde shellac, or else pines go a bit too orange.
