I definitely would not use oil on top of water without shellac between them. It is prudent to use a coat, maybe 2, of de-waxed shellac between water and oil finishes.

The water based poly may be drying too fast causing the orange peel. What is your relative humidity and temp? Try reducing the fan pattern or increasing the fluid slightly, but try to keep each coat <5mils. Maybe reduce the air flow at the gun a little? Let us know how this works for you. HTH
