Steven – I do that too because of the durability of those finishes and superior protection against abrasions and abuse for high use surfaces…like tables. But I still use shellac early for washcoating, grain popping, and compatibility issues between coats. I also use it for color delivery with dyes. Whereas you could use dyes or stains in a varnish or lacquer with similar effect, dewaxed shellac is a lot less expensive.
