This was finished with blonde shellac. With a french polish type of aplication. It has become my go to finish for curly maple. Sometimes I will top it off with Arm r seal if needed.

You didn’t use any dye on that maple before the shellac? That’s the fanciest curly maple I’ve seen without dye enhancement.

No just the shellac. It was a really nicely figured board the texture of the grain felt like a washboard

Great job; like others I’m blown away by the grain pop. Do you source your curly maple locally, or is there a supplier name you could share? It’s much better than most of what I’ve seen in local stores.

I did pick it up at a local sawmill. I think I just lucked out it is the best peice i have come across. The board practically jumped out at me as I walked down isle.
