I am almost finished with my daughter’s book case and I know almost nothing about finishing. The case is cherry plywood with hardwood edging. From what I have read I am contemplating a couple coats of BLO followed by shellac. I am not sure if I should add anything over the shellac like a varnish, poly or laquer.
I also will be adding a plywood backing onto this and trying to clean away my bad glue job. Please any advice would help but remember I am a novice finisher.
Following are two pictures of the case and what I currently have on hand. I can buy more if it is needed.
