Once the tricky veneer work was completed, and all the necessary touchup and dye was done, we moved on to replacing the finish. We applied a shellac as that was the original finish. To replicate the color we used 4 coats, 2 of orange shellac and 2 of super blonde shellac. The table looks fantastic. The colors of the veneers are vibrant and have depth. It is once again a masterpiece that can proudly grace the living room of the original maker's family and descendants.
