    “Here are the results of the sample boards I did using Royal-Lac. The spruce was brushed and padded on then leveled and buffed by hand. The rosewood samples were sprayed and French polished. The sprayed one was leveled and buffed by hand. All results are nice. The product is indeed alcohol and heat resistant which is nice. Congrats on a nice product.”

    As a proponent of shellac finishes, I was impressed with Royal Lac the first time I used it. It brushed well and was very easy to apply with a pad. The finish it produces is heat and alcohol resistant.
    To test a Royal Lac finish I let it sit a for a few weeks, poured denatured alcohol on the surface and let it sit for a couple of minutes. When I wiped it clean, there was no discernible damage to the finish.
    I’m impressed and look forward to working with it.

    “Just wanted to say thanks for the video. Was able to pick up some helpful tips from it. Very professional, great pictures and sound. For as long as I’ve been restoring furniture (almost 20 yrs), French polishing has given me the most struggle. Although my clients were very happy, I was never satisfied and knew it could and should be better. Anyways, I got your video just as I was reconditioning a large mahogany dining table. Applied some of your techniques that I was missing. End result was the best French polishing I ever applied.”

    “Vijay Velji’s DVD gives a clear understanding how to use shellac, to do french polishing, and he conveys what a beautiful and durable finish shellac is! I recommend it very highly for a professional or a beginner.”

    “I just had the perfect opportunity for using Royal-lac; I was on-site in a NYC appt, and had to polish out a large rectangular antique farm table that had sustained some heat marks and water rings on the top. We cleaned the surface with naphtha, a little water and detergent, and lightly cut the top with 400 grit paper, followed by a light padding with the Royal-lac. The product worked very well, it padded very nicely, had minimal odor, was clear and had a nice sheen. We returned the following week and lightly steel wooled and waxed the top to slightly modulate the gloss. The table looks great, is holding up well and the client is pleased. Thanks again and we will be ordering more of this product.”
