I use zinsser shellac or waterlox probably 90% of the time. I applied waterlox original over zinsser clear shellac totally by accident, forgot I was using shellac (2 coats applied) and grabbed the waterlox. After a few choice words, and a couple days, it looked ok, so applied another coat of the waterlox.
I like the way it came out and have tried it on a couple more projects (not by mistake these times) with good results.
Note, these were scrollsaw projects, not furniture. I find the shellac (thinned 50-50) will get into the small cutouts easier than the waterlox.
