Agree on Charles' Blotch Control. It's really good stuff. I've used it on a dresser, mirror and pair of night stands on cherry where I went dark with the stain and it really did help control the blotch.

Highly recommended.

I have his 12 DVD set (or maybe it's 10) and it's excellent. He does take his time so it's a commitment to watch all the video but you'll learn a lot after going through them!

@neilc

I do not have his DVD set, but I have the link to all of his videos or at least I think I do. All are informative and his blotch control really works.

For the last few days I have been coating my second salt-cedar door with his BC and I just finished spraying the backside of the door. If you consider that I am staining or dyeing poplar to look like cherry, the results are amazing. Without his BC I'm certain that I would have a total mess on my hands.

I am very fortunate to have had him lend a hand on this project.

I finished spraying the shellac on the door yesterday. The face - which you see in the attached photo, will receive one more coat of shellac after the salt cedar sticks have been laid into each panel.

In case you're wondering about the light-colored boards on top/bottom of the door, they are used to support the door when it is horizontal on my spray table.

The rope is my insurance policy.

Thanks!

Looks stunning, Phillip! Beautiful color. How do you think it will change over the years and sun?

Great question! I have no idea how the doors would fare in direct sunlight - probably not very well. Shellac is not a sunblocking finish, to my knowledge anyway.

My greatest fear with these doors is wet fingers and that is probably not anything to worry about. They will both have nice brass pulls which is where most or all of the door touching will occur.

The good news is that these doors face South so they never get direct sunlight. However, this December 21st (winter solstice) I plan to pay close attention to the possibility that they will get direct sunlight as the sun is at its lowest point over the Southern horizon. I'm sure you know all of this, but I truly never gave this much thought.

Thanks for the great gotcha question.

Hmmm. I'm pretty sure LC is in the northern hemisphere, which means that a south-facing door is exposed to direct sunlight. A north-facing door will tend to be in the shade (at least, the northern side of it. If the southern side is indoors, then it should not experience sun).

But perhaps we've got our coordinate systems mixed up?
