I have got to the stage where I am now starting to look at options for the finish to my first build and I have chosen french polish.
I have some Methylated spirit which I am told is suitable for french polishing and also verified by this excellent site.
My concern is that in England, I don't know about over there in the USA, it is coloured purple. Will the colour of the Methanol effect the colour of the finish? I am going to use blonde shellac and I obviouly don't want the soundboard to have a purple tint however slight that may be.
