Thanks for your input Henry. I did pick up a stripper that does not caution against use on floors and is nonflammable, stripped a small area, and was pleased with how well the shellac came up, the color isn't bad, but as with all stripping projects I have tackled, a bit of sanding will probably be needed. I guess we are afraid of the drum sander, as neither one of us has used one before and have concerns about the softness of the pine and the lack of experience using an aggressive sander. Any good pointers about pine floors and a drum sander?
Question, why do you have to use a spit coat of shellac before staining pine floors? Can't you just stain and seal?
Thanks alot for your help!
