I like shellac as a wood finish. I use it where ever it is appropriate.

Here’s some “Internet Wisdom” myths debunked:

  • The M&M brand candy is NOT coated with shellac – according to the manufacturer.
  • Wood finishing shellac is relatively safe but it is NOT refined the same as food-grade shellac or medical-grade shellac.
