>> I made a loft bed for my daughter some time age and all was fine
till now. The reason for this change is that I made the bed a little too
high, about 8", and she now keeps hitting her head when she get up.
>> I have cut the bed down to a more usable size, but the ladder is now
leaking resin. The wood is a soft pine, known here as CLS timber, very
cheep, but quite good for this type of use. Looks like I've cut through
a knot, and I need some help please.
>> What's the best way of stopping this leakage, keeping in mind that
the bed is all waxed?
>> I was thinking of using shellac to seal the wood, but will this seal
be good enough to stop the resin form getting through?
> This is a typical job for shellac. Cheap, easy to use, fast drying,
Thanks needed a little help to ensure I was using the correct stuff.
> Clean off the wax with mineral spirits or similar, then have at it.
Thanks for this suggestion, was going to ask what to clean it with.
Again many thanks will let you know how it turns out :-)
