Very nice build!! Do you put any wax on after shellac or is it just shellac and then buffed to a sheen?

I used Amber shellac then used 220 grit between coats then applied two coats of clear shellac and used oooo steel wool to bring up the shine. Plan to put past wax on for a final finish

Thanks to all who have commented. It was a a fun build. Hardest part was tapering the legs because if the size of the table it was needed ; two sides didn’t look right four. Sides made the leg to skinny I finally went with three sides this provided the lightened look I was trying for.
