Nite Walker’s plan makes sense….shellac is meant to be a thin finish, building it very thick may lead to alligatoring. Also consider most wiping varnish coats are considered to be 3 wiping coats = 1 brushed coat. So putting 1 wiping coat on the desk may not provide the protection you want. As you consider your choices, I guess there is no option to keep the shop heated for a day or 2 to allow most of the varnish to cure? The waterborne will solve your problems, in terms of drying and odor.
