An Unsurpassed Introduction to Shellac

Throughout my time at The National Institute of Wood Finishing, I was privileged to sit under Mitch Kohanek, founder and instructor for the school. Mitch has written this brief introduction to one of the most delightful wood finishes in history: shellac. Under Mitch's careful instruction, I developed a love for this material unmatched by any other coating. Mitch, in this article, lays out the benefits, nuances, and methodological considerations for this most choice of finishes. This is perhaps the single best introductory article I've read on the topic. Enjoy.
