French polishing is a traditional method of applying shellac to wooden furniture. It offers a glossy and smooth surface with a rich depth, and is suitable for any type of wood, particularly those with closed grains such as maple or cedar. However, this technique can also be used on open grain wood such as walnut and mahogany, but the grain would need to be filled with pumice powder first.
This method has existed since the 1600s but is not all that common due to it being very labour intensive. However – its effects cannot be matched! Our skilled restorers will take the time and care to expertly polish your beloved pieces in order to restore them to their former glory.
We can restore your wooden furniture to the highest standards. This technique provides a durable finish as it is flexible so it resists cracking, scratching and other general wear and tear. The shellac also dries quickly, is non-toxic and will not yellow over time. Get in touch with us today to find out more.
