Zinsser 1 Quart Amber Shellac Traditional Finish and Sealer is for wood furniture, floors, paneling, trim, crafts and antique restoration. The shellac dries to the touch in 15 minutes and can be re-coated in 45 minutes. Beautifies wood with a lustrous glow that will not darken with age.
I build reproduction colonial benches and use this to both highlight the grain, and give the deep color to the stains that give them age.. I usually apply 2 - 3 coats, buffing each down to produce a soft sheen, then finish them with mulitple coats of a quality paste wax.
