Excellent sealer. As a painter I’ve used BIN and Bulls Eye primer for years on smoke and water damaged ceilings or knotty wood. It’s basically white pigmented shellac. Don’t bother with Zinsser’s latex based stain-blocking ceiling paint – it doesn’t and it isn’t. Need to go to their shellac or oil-based products to cover. Most wood pieces I refinish are done in clear shellac followed by rubbing with 0000 steel wool and clear paste wax. Wood should invite you to touch it – not look like a piece of plastic.
