In Response To: Re: Restoring Colour To Faded Rosewood (Peter Mills)

I recently restored a piece of 1860's rosewood that had dired to near-driftwiid condition. The best color was achieved by using garnet shellac. About 5-6 coats , each one getting darker, made a beautiful finish, and really burst out the beauty of the rosewood.
