it is that sort of orange-yellow color, I want to refinish one of my maks.any idea what the finish is? it sort of looks like the old orange shellac found in some of the older homes around here. any home-brew recipes? thanks in advance. :grin:I am talking about the furniture :lol:

They varied from dark yellowish to light orangish. I've never been able to dupe the recipe, but a "honey" type of color comes to mind. Chu wood is quite blond as it starts out... hope that helps...

Thanks THS, it's for the MAK I got from you! the stock I made(maple) doesn't stain to match the handguards...so I stripped it all and am thinking a colored shellac. I think all the wood would take this evenly. I'll experiment on a few different woods using different colors and see what happens. :grin:
