Hi Skone.

Your counters look great!

Thanks for that. I actually just got done putting on a coat of walnut oil+beeswax. Will wait a few hours, buff, and add another coat. I sanded to 320.

Shellac. Hmm. That sounds like a good idea; I just read up on Wikipedia about it. I didn’t know it came from bugs!

What happens when you spill vodka on shellac? Does the shellac get eaten away? Is it a big deal to repair? Does the gloss diminish with time? Does it needs periodic recoats like the rest of these options? Can I pop it on top of my wax’n’walnut concoction after it wears off some?

I’m getting less attached to my desire for super-shiny counters, anyway. Maybe I’ll bedazzle the cupboards instead.
