I just discovered this site and it is AWESOME! I will definitely be wasting some work time on this site. Anyway, I have a finishing question and I hope your collective knowledge can help. I am trying to finish some cherry interior doors. I have decided that I want to use a glazing technique to even out the finish and ensure a nice result.
I am generally familiar with the glazing process. I plan on spraying a seal coat of 2 pound cut shellac and then glazing.
I want to use General Finishes Georgian Cherry gel stain. However, i want to top coat with shellac. Can I do this? I think General Finishes recommends using their gel polyurethane. However, i do not like the look of poly. I much prefer shellac and have used it throughout my home.
Can I shellac over the gel stain? Does it matter if the shellac is waxed or unwaxed? Is there some better way to achieve the color of the georgian cherry stain?
All advice is appreciated!
