ScottinTexas: I just finished an armoire using a similar technique. The finish I used was a 1 pound cut blonde dewaxed shellac that was sprayed on; one coat on the entire piece and three coats on the internal components. The outside was then finished with General Finishes Arm-R-Seal oil and urethane topcoat; two coats gloss and one coat semi-gloss. I think it turned out great, and I did not have any problems adding the oil over the shellac. I hope this helps, good luck with your project.
