I would use de-waxed shellac instead. However, if you do the end grain first you should be ok using just your chosen finish. End grain absorbs more quickly than face or edge grain and thus drips and runs over the edge will show up if the entire end is not done at once. Just do them first—on scrap, naturally—and see how it looks.
