I think you have convinced me to go with the non-poly varnish over the waxed shellac. Of course I will experiement before applying it to the end tables that I am finishing.

At this point I am only planning to put the varnish on the tops because:
1.) I am very happy iwth the shellac finish results on the rest of the end table.
2.) I am only concerned about protecting the tops from cup/glass water marks.

I also am planning to apply some tinted wax as the final “top-coat” so I am thinking that any slight difference in “color” between the end tabel tops and the rest of the table will be cancelled out by the wax.

I really appreciate your feedback. How did you happen to gain all of this finishing knowledge?
