Would you be able to include shellac in a water based material, I wouldn't have thouht so, but like I said I'm probably wrong again!!!!

Just looked at my tins, Polyurethane Acxrylic Satin Varnish with Teflon added, priced at £14:99 litre, I must say when I used some on a few things last year it finished ver well.

Derek, I was referring to the origins of the two terms because it's interesting to know where they came from. As far as I can make out the current meaning of varnish and lacquer are now in the hands of various finishing manufacturers marketing departments!

Thanks Ben....very interesting.

I know I have said before that I will one day go on a David Charlesworth course....but much more useful would be a really good course on finishing. I would love to spend some time with someone who knew what he was talking about, trying all the available stuff on all sorts of wood.
