    Can you identify this tree?

    Shellac flakes

    Shellac flakes

    There is no need to store them in the refrigerator and I've never heard that recommendation from several shellac flake suppliers. Keep them dry and at room temperature in ziplock bags and they'll be fine.

    Wood/finish for porch?

    Nicely done. It looks fine to me and you didn't need Epifanes spar varnish after all. Why do you say that? Who was right about what?

    Shellac flakes

    Shellac flakes

    I have some shellac flakes that I bought from shellacfinishes.com a couple of years ago and I wasn't sure that they were still good or whether to buy new flakes. One package said "check dissolution after Feb 2019" and the other said " check dissolution after Oct 2019". Made a 2 lb cut (4...
