My table is coming along. On Tuesday, I get to glue it all together. I'll have to shellac it later at home. Did you know shellac is made from bugs?

Sure. That's why there were no records in WW II: lac bugs live in the Pacific tropics, which the Japanese rudely occupied. We had to develop synthetic plastic because of them!

Larry always used tung oil in finishing instead of shellac -- it is much easier to use and is easier to maintain, especially in a heavy use situation (like a table).
