Yes, it's as late as the date stamp says.
But I simply had to announce that after a long Monday of sanding, steaming out dents, more sanding, more steaming out dents, a whole lot of vacuuming and dusting, a wipe-down with denatured alcohol, and, oh yes, a little more steaming out of dents followed by more sanding and vacuuming, I finally got things in order with my 2nd floor hall and the main stairs to get some mahogany-tinted shellac onto the hall floor.
Only "some," because I began by applying a repair coat to the stairs to the 3rd floor, and I didn't start that till after 1:00 AM. I then proceeded to lay a first coat onto half the hall. Only half, because my upstairs hall is L-shaped and I can't levitate and I don't want lap marks at the midpoints of the longest boards. Besides, it was past 3:30 by the time I finished the first leg of the L, and if I get called in to teach in the morning that's rapidly approaching, I'm going to be a big slice of burnt toast as it is.
But after all this time, I thought it was only right for me to mark the occasion. Pictures and commentary to follow.
