    Default Just cleaned up finish

    with DNA and it came up to a shine. It appears shellac is the basic finish used on the Romys and it is alcohol soluable. If you use a real wet application, the finish gets tacky and leaves a 'milky' look to it. Keep rubbing the finish with a less wet section of cloth and then it will shine. The dirt and grime will also come off the finish.

    Just to chime in, my experience with tung oil finish has been that it's ends up quite thick feels like there's a plastic layer over the wood (can't feel the grain).

    I'm currently using Spar (not poly) Urethane and when sprayed on you can still feel the wood grain and get a proper coating on the wood.
    It's innocent until proven guilty no matter how much you hate the present or future defendant.

    Here's the finished stock set. The tung oil does build up quickly, so I can se how it could make a thick layer, but I stopped at three caots. It's thick enough to fill all the grain and protect the wood, but I can still see and feel the grain. It ended up a little lighter in shade after the tung oil, but it looks close enough for me.

    It's only metal, it's not magic.

    Alf004,

    Use a wrench to twist the metal piece gently while you hold the wood part. It will only twist out in 1 direction.

    Looks like the experiment was a success! Very nice. What did you tint the shellac with? Rit dye?
