Don’t know if you can, but I wouldn’t. What is the end result you are seeking?

Don’t know why it wouldn’t work if you “scruffed” it to provide some “bite”.

What about the lacquer finish do you not like?

Epoxy will give you a really nice plastic-y ikea-like finish if that is the look you want.

If you’re looking for a great finish with great durability go with conversion varnish.
