I've searched a bit and read a lot (Jewitt, etc.) but can't find a
direct answer to the following question:
If I use a 1# cut of dewaxed shellac padded on as a seal coat (over a
stain or even raw wood) is there some rule of thumb about how long it
should dry before I overcoat it with an oil based finish (varnish,
It's always seemed to me that once shellac is dry to the touch (maybe
15 - 30 minutes with a 1# cut), it's done its thing, but I see and
hear references to "curing" it before overcoating, hence the question.
