No need for shellac as per your well-thought-out tests. I only suggested it because it dries fast (can reliably seal and not lift a recently stained surface) and bonds well enough between almost any 2 normally incompatible clear coat finishes (scuff sanding and de-waxed shellac required). As such, Zinsser sells a shellac-based pigmented (white) primer/sealer named BIN which I’ve noticed woodworkers seem to rate highly on various forums. Shellac has its specific uses among a minority of wood refinishers today – a whole other topic, my friend. Looking forward to seeing the ‘mother of all wedding benches’ sometime in the future – great idea BTW.
