French polishing is a wood finishing technique that results in a very high gloss surface, with a deep colour and chatoyancy. French polishing consists of applying many thin coats of shellac dissolved in alcohol using a rubbing pad lubricated with oil. The rubbing pad is made of absorbent cotton or wool cloth wadding inside a square piece of fabric (usually soft cotton cloth) and is commonly referred to as a fad. This is a lengthy and repetitive process where our employees apply many thin coats of French polish using a cloth or pad resulting in a very high gloss and deep colour. The finish is obtained through circular motions building up layers of polish over considerable time. French polishing is commonly used on mahogany and other expensive woods, and gives the best possible finish to furniture.
