How to French Polish
French polishing is an art and a science. In this video furniture maker, restorer and polisher Frank van Brunschot shows some of the fundamental parts of the process.
Frank first shows how the French polisher's rubber or mouse is folded from cotton wadding and linen or heavy duty cotton. He then demonstrates the basic techniques and stroke patterns for grain filling and applying shellac. After that, all you need is patience, practice and persistence to develop your skills!
