That poll reminded me - those of you who have done this before; what stuff did you use to for finish on a camera? I know it was originally shellac, but I also know that others have used other products.

I have some of the finishing I used on the wooden parts of my boat, which not only gives a wonderful polish but is also water- and salt resistant. But Eddie (Hill, of Gandolfi) was shocked that I would even consider using boat laquer on a camera - but maybe he's just not aboat person
