French polishing, renowned for its ability to bestow wooden furniture with a lustrous high-quality finish, is an art form in itself. This technique enhances the deep tones within the wood, showcasing its inherent beauty. Through a vigilant process, thin layers of shellac dissolved in alcohol are carefully applied to the wood using a specialised cloth. French polishing is renowned for surpassing other types of finishes, such as varnishes, as it accentuates the wood's natural allure. This remarkable technique is applicable to various types of wood, including the rich textures of mahogany, the elegant grains of walnut, and more.
