French polishing brings out the best in wooden furniture, and it's a routine part of our day.
French polishing is a traditional wood finishing technique that results in a very high gloss surface with a deep colour and chatoyancy.
French polishing consists of applying many thin coats of shellac dissolved in alcohol using a rubbing pad lubricated with oil.
The process of French polishing is lengthy and repetitive, but the finish is considered to be one of the most beautiful ways to finish highly figured wood.
French polishing is used in wooden furniture that's worn or faded over time. Many wood restoration projects are completed with French polishing for a finish that's simple unbeatable.
