Eric if formbys says so well giver.

I remember varnish cans telling us"do not us over shellac" i guess they should have said do not use over a thick layer of shellac with wax in it.
What they did not say was there is no better sealer coat under your varnish than shellac and it sands way better.
I so hate decptive marketing.

I dont get the point or benefit of using raw oil unless you plan on putting a traditional oil finish or oil &wax mix.
Most of my finishes are a blend of more basic ingredents (boiled oil, varnish, varsol a variety of shellacs and waxes).

Chris i have never uses that before they do have a variety of products, i will have to keep a eye out for them when in the bbox stores. My wife is always looking for better cleaners and polishes for the cupboards and floors.

I just realized I made a rather dumb mistake. The construction of my cabinets differs from the original plans in the way the front baffle is attached. In order to keep the inner dimensions the same I should have taken into account the different method of construction. I have this in my notes but, alas, it was never done. So, the inner chamber is too large by 18mm. Unfortunately at this stage I can't think of any easy (or even moderately difficult) way to fix it. How significantly can this affect the performance of the speakers?
