Quality Sealers and Topcoats

I prefer a de-waxed shellac as a sealer.  This product provides a great base for building the lacquer topcoats.  Shellac provides an excellent barrier for contaminants that might be in the wood from old furniture polishes.  It also has excellent adhesion qualities you ensure the finish is well bonded to the wood. 

Shellac Sealer is applied on piano lid.
