Shellac has a limited shelf life… Unless you plan to use a lot at once, mix as required… Keep mixed shellac in a fridge.
100% alcohol (Metho in Australia), though usually much dearer (and harder to source), makes a better mix than that laced with 5-10% Ethanol… though most would not notice the difference.

Though its long (1:28:38), here is a video that may give you some ideas that many do not cover (in one)... Suggest downloading and watching while consuming some good drinking alcohol.
Link to a handy cut table... and some hints in the included link in the PDF.

PS. ”Dead” shellac mixed 10:1 with non-pure metho makes a good sanding sealer. To test… put a drop or two between thumb and forefinger and tap the two together slowly for about 30 or so seconds, if it doesn’t tack up its more than likely “dead”...

-- If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD
