That's a really good question. I don't have an answer, but an idea came to mind; mixing a "texture agent" into shellac, something along the lines of garnet - I guess like a really fine sand to break up the slip factor. The other thing I thought of was an acrylic wood treatment, the kind used on boats. It's relatively thick and has some give to it, which reduces slip. Well, in any case, let us know how the build goes!
I've built two ramps, and not to discourage you, because I think it CAN work, but generally the more edges you have on the surface, the quicker it gets torn up. I'd definitely love to see a pic of all done up tho, it sounds amazing!
