I did a wainscoting project in cherry and sealed with dewaxed shellac. Then stain. Then topcoated with pre-cat lacquer. I ran out of space in the shop, so I moved the boards outside when they were dry. After sitting in direct sunlight (75 degree day) the lacquer crinkled. Lacquer only would not have reacted that way.
Ever since then I do not consider dewaxed shellac “universal.”
In fact I like to stick with pre-cat lacquer for all interior projects.
