Waterlox original. I’ve used it several times on vanities. A custom kitchen co. I do work for uses it as their finish for wood countertops.

A coat or two of shellac first will bring out some of the wood figure. For poly and w/b, it needs to be dewaxed, but it’s not necessary for Waterlox. But I’d use SealCoat because I have it around all the time. Orange shellac would be another good choice.

Try both ways on a piece of scrap and see which you prefer.
