I visited friends in Paris in June of 2001.  I hadn’t finished the pentomino sets to use as gifts, so the first day there I tried to buy some shellac flakes and alcohol.  No, I don’t speak a word of French.  The funny thing, when I finally found some in the equivalent of a Home Depot,  they were manufactured a few blocks from where I was staying.

Mahogany frames leveled with red filler before finishing.
