  1. Alfie Shine Hard Wax Polish 60ml


    Alfie Shine is a proper, old fashioned, hard wax polish with the addition of some special natural ingredients, from a recipe found in a 17th century instrument maker’s notebook and so doesn't contain any solvents at all.

    Applied in thin coats (a little goes a very long way) with a soft cloth or a clean shoe brush for larger surfaces, Alfie Shine penetrates and nourishes dry wood. With successive applications, the resins grad...

  5. Pumice Powder 1lb

    A traditional material for French polishing, pumice powder is used for invisibly filling the pores in timber to create a level surface over which finishes can be applied.

    Workshop Heaven Garnet Shellac Flakes 100g


    These are finest quality, highly pure, dewaxed shellac flakes and they produce a wonderfully transparent, very hard surface. The super blonde flakes are very pale, the lemon brightens and accentuates figure and the garnet adds warmth and character. You can mix them together, either dry or dissolved, to adjust the results and get exactly the colour you want. In their dry form they have a shelf life of years. Once dissolved shellac wil...
