I made a footstool for a friend for an Xmas present -- got it built so I could slap a bow on it and give it to her when we went to Xmas dinner, but had to take it back to finish it.
It is maple, I am going to do a shellac sealer with poly wipe on.
The shellac isn't setting up. It has been hot and humid here and letting it dry in the garage probably hasn't been a good thing. I bought it into the house so it has been sitting in AC for about 24 hours. If I press hard on a surface I can see a finger print mark. I have 3 coats on applied about 12 hours apart.
So before I sand it off and start again I thought I'd ask your opinion.
I'm using Zinnser Bullseye Clear, cut 50%.
Thanks for the advice
