Default What happened if spray shellac over lacquer

I've been using lacquer for all my speakers projects so far but they have a smell that although it has been months, the smell has not gone away completely. On the other hand, shellac has no smell.

So I am planning to re-sand the speakers and spray them with shellac. Will this work?

The shellac is meant to soak into the timber so if you remove all of the lacquer you should be okay.

I am afraid I won't be able to remove all the lacquer. I can sand out the existing layer of lacquer but i don't think I'll be able to remove the lacquer out completely. What would happen if the shellac will interact with the remaining layer of lacquer?

Shellac is not a coating like lacquer is, it behaves more like an oil. It is actually bug excrement.

Perhaps what you need for this job, if the surface is good, is some other kind of varnish or polyurethane to go on top. If you want some colour, there are pre-coloured varnishes available though I don't like using them unless I have no choice.
