Wooden Toy Truck Martin Motors Antique Car Carrier Build Part 11 Finishing With Shellac

Wooden Toy Truck Martin Motors Antique Car Carrier Parts: After applying a coat of shellac, I hang the parts from a copper wire and wait for the shellac to cure before sanding them again.
After applying a coat of shellac, I hang the parts on a copper wire and wait for the shellac to cure before sanding them again.

After the first sanding I apply several coats of clear shellac. I like using shellac. It cures rapidly, and I can get a beautiful finish with it. Shellac is food-safe and hypoallergenic. It is used as a coating for many foods, so children chewing on it is not an issue. While not as durable as some synthetic finishes, it's easily repairable. I am using a dewaxed clear shellac, also known as Sealcoat, for the truck and car bodies. I use pieces of copper wire to form hangers and hang the parts until they are cured enough to sand and apply the second coat. These are hanging on the front rail of my Shopsmith.
