I don’t see why you’d use a water-based poly over shellac over BLO. Water-based makes sense if you want to avoid yellowing/darkening that occurs with oils, but you used BLO already, so that is moot.

Might as well just use normal oil-based poly. That makes the shellac in between coat pretty much moot as well. (no oil-based/water-based clash).

Put it right on top of your existing “damp” BLO coat, no need to wait. And be done.
