I just looked into it. Evidently Enduro Var 2 can be applied over shellac, but not the original Enduro Var. Shows you how long it's been since I used a General Finishes product.Interesting video.. thanks for sharing!
Not sure if he has good intel on his water based products. If I remember correctly, general finishes products, especially Enduro Var, have proprietary sealers. Don't apply them over shellac! This may be the case with other water based brands. Always call your finishing product companies and ask questions!
That said, I do love shellac as a sealer for poly or a stand alone finish. However, I pretty much only use spray finishes these days, (industrial finishes). Two part finishes that are spray only, and of course lacquer. I am very pleased with how they look on walnut.
Most of my customers don't have a budget to pay for a hand applied, rubbed out finish.
I watched the video. Also, I've used three of the four products in the video - along with several others. I pretty much agree with the video's results. I do spray most of my finishes, and it was noted in the video that the brush marks were there, but the products were intended for spraying. I was kinda surprised at how well all of them brushed on.it was just someone's opinion. sorry it offended or wasn't what the masters preferred. it had been asked what finish was liked for walnut by a poster earlier and i thought perhaps this might work for some.
Hopefully finishing discussions are not an area where people get offended. I think everyone has their go-to that they're comfortable with. I really enjoy learning about different finishing techniques.it was just someone's opinion. sorry it offended or wasn't what the masters preferred. it had been asked what finish was liked for walnut by a poster earlier and i thought perhaps this might work for some.
