For me, and probably most people, the staining/finishing of the piece is really where the pay off is, in terms of satisfaction. I finished with a bunch of coats of Shellac for one reason – it’s food safe and Isabella still eats at least half of each meal from the table. Shellac isn’t quite as strong as some other options (there is a ring from a cup of hot tea on there already and water can stain it if left there too long) but it’s easy to refinish when the time comes.
