The art of French polishing, as seen in video form.

French polishing is a fine art which demands meticulous attention to detail and patience. It is best left to the professionals. Today, we at A.D. Woodcraft would like to share with you a few video clips on the process. So sit back, relax, and enjoy.

1. How to make a fad and rubber

Our first clip looks at how to make a fad and a rubber. Without this, French polishing would be impossible. It is the oldest tool in the French polisher’s toolkit.

2. Beeswax Furniture Polish – How to get the best results

In this clip by Gilboy’s Ltd, we look at how their beeswax polish can enhance your furniture – with reference to proper polishing techniques. Their polish is made from the beeswax of Buckfast Abbey’s beehives.

3. French polishing a ukulele

In Stephen McLean’s series of clips on making a concert ukulele, the sixteenth part focuses on the French polishing process.

4. French Polishing – before & after by Paleamber

We cannot resist a good Before and After clip, and Paleamber’s film is no exception. They also decry how such good furniture could be taken to the scrapheap.
