I had read that amber shellac improved the color of the fumed oak, adding warmth and depth. Some of mine had a grayish cast and whatever I read specifically mentioned improving the grayish color. I also fell for the old saw that Shellac sticks to every thing and everything sticks to shellac. And I was less than comfortable with have a little over a quart of finish for three coats. So I was thinking if the first coat were shellac, maybe the subsequent coats would go further and I would not have to use the urethane of the under side of the top.

Have I ever mentioned that in spite of my appearance of bumbling through life I may have a tendency to over think things?
