I think it’s a bad idea to use tongue and groove lumber as a backsplash in a kitchen, with or without the additional complication of using shellac as the finish in an area exposed to humidity, grease and who knows what else… The inherent “dirt” in a kitchen will build up in the cracks in the surface of the tongue and groove. I think you’d be better off using either a tile backsplash or a solid surface corian.

Just my $0.02 worth. Your milage may vary.

Good Luck!

Be Careful!
