Re: applying shellac

spruce and ordjen,
thanks for all of your input.
ordjen, good point about the alcohol in shellac. i have done other projects with shellac (my enclosed 8'x 16' workshop was lots o' fun), but i prefer my alcohol cold and liquid.
i just remembered another little glitch. there is a section of sloped ceiling above the stairway (still about 11'-0" headroom)that will need sealed also.
this will be put on hold until i figure out a good, safe way to reach all of this easily.
originally, someone else was going to do the finishing, but they decided not to. got me again!
would still like to post pics if i can make it work
thanks again
