As the name suggests this method of polishing was first introduced in France, I offer the traditional method of French polishing, applying the polish by hand with a "fad" a folded piece of wadding wrapped up in high quality lint free cloth.
The benefits of French polishing are a deep lustrous finish giving a pleasing mirror finish and has the advantage of being easily corrected if later marked by heat, water or sun damage.
I only use genuine French polishes made from Shellac which is derived from the incrustations of lac insects which feed upon the sap of trees in India and Thailand. French polish is usually applied in a clear format to show the beauty of the natural grain of the wood, or colourings can be added to restore faded areas or tie in with other pieces.
French polishing is the ideal solution for most items of furniture, my recent work has included regency dining tables, occasional tables and dining chairs. I can touch out scratches and sun bleach or complete a full re-polish. French polishing is equally suitable for interior fittings such as staircases, doors and wood panelling. I have recently completed the restoration of church panelling and altar furniture.
