Cradle with shellac finish

I just finished adding some finish to the cradle,I used orange shellac. The best part about using shellac in my view is that it will last hundreds of years guaranteed. It’s not like I’m going to be around to see it, but if you need proof, just go to any museum and see for yourselves if what I say is true or false.

    1. When you think about it, shellac is a natural finish, an excrement from a bug. Poly and other modern day finishes are all man made chemicals and yet it can’t last more than 20 years excluding automotive products.

      1. Boiled linseed oil and shellac has been my finish of choice for years. Occasionally, I’ll add dye or stain to the BLO, but I always end with shellac.
