  1. Just used some yesterday! Altho, I use the pre mix, as a sanding sealer on my rocking chair. Sure make the grain pop on hard maple!
    Now sanding by hand with 220 grit in preperation for wipe-on polly.
    I like the ease of application and clean up with alcohol not to mention that if you do get a run, you can just go back over it and smooth it out with more shellac
