I am building a shelf, and I’m going to glaze coat it with bar top glaze. the shelf is a 2×10 cedar board that I antiqued and stained. when I coat with the glaze do I do one side at a time? if so which side do I do first top or bottom? how long should I let it dry between coats before I do the other side?how do I prevent dripping on the edges and the bottom? Any tips would be helpful, I’m definitely a beginner. Thanks!

Generally only do the top. Put tape around the edges to try to contain it. Put lots of paper on the floor under it. If you are like the rest of us first time can get messy. Gets a bunch easier with practice. First coat is a seal coat. Put it on thin. Here’s a link to a video on how to do it.
