Hi Chris, Are you sure it's shellac?
Shellac can be removed with denatured alcohol without affecting the bamboo akin adversely. You can wet or soak small areas at a t time and then wipe off. If it's varnish, it will be more difficult. You'll need another solvent, like lacquer thinner or something more toxic.

Using super fine #0000 steel wool dry will work also.

As always, go slowly.

Good luck - Perry

Yes, probably clear lacquer. But with caution I will proceed. I may try dry first with the steel wool on a small patch. Thanks.
