I am finishing up a table / cabinet. It maple plywood for the box (sides, shelf, bottom), maple plywood for the door panels, solid maple on the face frame, solid zebrawood for the door frames, and a combination of solid maple and zebrawood on the top.
It will be in a living room and will have stuff placed on top of it – so protection / sealing is important to me.
I read on here that putting a thin (single) coating of shellac over the entire cabinet / table and then throwing on 1 or 2 coats of poly would provide sealing and protection. Others say shellac and poly should never be combined.
The overall goal is to seal / protect but maintain the natural color -
