That is true Bert, and I agree it is not for everyone. I happen to really like the “old world” finish, when everything was sealed with amber shellac. I like clear finishes sometimes, but they can also look a little to “industrial” or “Ikea”. That is only my opinion. My home is full of very detailed woodwork from the turn of the century. When I chose to restore the finish, I wanted something to mirror the slightly amber hue of the original finish.
