French polishing has a place precisely because it is traditional.
It has taken a lot of flak, not unlike hot hide glue, over the years from people who haven’t bothered to try it.
Also like hide glue, most of these criticisms are unfounded.
It does have a learning curve but when did “easy” become a synonym for “best” or even “good” for that matter? Another important advantage of french pohish is that it produces a fantastic reversible finish.
Ever try reversing a “modern” finish?
