Garnett Shellac


Recommended Posts

I have been experimenting with both Blonde shellac, and today...Garnett. I have been very happy with the results of the blonde on both oak and walnut.

Today I had a walnut project I already had 2 coats of blonde shellac on, and decided to make the third coat Garnett. Man, did it turn both the heartwood and small amount of sapwood...YELLOW(ish)! I don't like it at all.

What application do you guys use [Garnett] shellac on? Do you have any suggestions how and/or where to use it?

Well, I guess before I throw it out, I'll have to burn up some wood experimenting with it. I only work with red oak, white oak, and American black walnut. I certainly don't like what it did to walnut.

I guess I can stain some oak, and see what it looks like after the Garnett "tones it down" that is the way I see it acting on the wood, so far.

I do, however, love the properties, and the results of Blonde shellac!
