I'm refinishing a late-1940's Juba tambour clock that has perfect woodwork but the original shellac finish was coming off in big chunks. I've got it stripped and ready to take a new finish, and my dewaxed orange shellac flakes should arrive soon. But I live in California, which has imposed a ban on the sale of denatured alcohol, so I'm in a quandary. I've read a lot of opinions but I'm wondering if someone has successful hands-on experience with an alternative solvent. Appreciate any help you can offer.
