Reviving the lost art of French polishing. Popular in Victorian times, French polish is the mirror-like finish that has long been admired as one of the most beautiful ways to finish wood. Because it is also labor-intensive, its popularity waned in the 20th century, but that could all change with the publication of French Polishing by Derek Jones. A no-nonsense approach this "antique" finish. Simple and straightforward, French Polishing demystifies the entire process, demonstrating that this finish is easier to do than most people think. Essentially, it consists of laying down one thin coat of shellac over another, time after time, to produce a tough, high-gloss finish.
