The topic of French polishing has come up on several threads lately. It made me think that some of you might be interested in this little tote that I made to keep my polishing bits and pieces together. I was introduced to the procedure last year at ASFM and got the general idea of the little squeeze bottles and a compact storage tote from Patrice who gave the instruction. The actual tote design is my own however.
The squeeze bottles on the front are for alcohol, pore-filling mix, pumice, shellac and mineral oil. There is an extra one that I will likely end up using as a second alcohol bottle as it seems to get used up the quickest.
The jars on the back are for pore-filling pads and bodying pads.
I don’t claim to be any kind of expert on the subject and even among those who are there as many methods as practitioners I think. At any rate here’s a little video of the way I do it. This was originally posted in my “Marie's Table” blog.

Thanks for looking.
