BTW, one of the most frustrating aspects of finishing is taking a pigment stain, like that gel stain, and wiping or brushing on anything on top that uses the same solvent…whether this is another stain or a film coat doesn’t matter. Shellac is wonderful for sealing between each transition.

Test everything on a practice board first. Try it without the shellac and watch the rag pull up the dried undercoat, smearing it all around. It’s not pretty. :)
