These windows got a shellacking

A lot of hard labour went into restoring these windows in this beautiful old home in Ripponlea 

They came up amazing thanks for a great job Aaron, Marlowe and G 

These windows had not been touched in years and needed a little love. 


Taping up all the window and removing all the hardware before the preparation begins.


Sanding them all the way back to timber with Festool sanders hooked up to vacuum system so not much dust 


Three seperate windows.. 

Shellac flakes mixed with metho to make a very thin brew of varnish. Then applied with brushes. The finish is amazing a true original eco varnish straight from the shellac beatle and the tree. Thanks to nature you get these amazing golden tones.
