Thanks everyone for your comments. I decided to go with kiln wash, and will just be very careful with my shelves. In fact, I fired the kiln for my first glaze firing last night (a bunch of test tiles ... totally anxious to see how they turned out!). It's cooling right now so I'll get to find out tonight or tomorrow morning if I did messed anything up, haha. :)

In Oregon? I joined the OPA recently ... is the guild something different?

Small amounts of glaze come off easily with hand held grinder with tile-cutting wheel/ blade. I've used this on pots and shelves that had small glaze errors. It may leave some dings or scratches on the surface of shelves, but I can live with those.
