Shellac (not dewaxed ) sealer, durability is not an issue, then polly. been using it for over 20 years never had a finish fail with it. As long as you only use the shellac as a sealer and don t build it up you can put pollycrylic over it no issues. I know a cabinet guy that switched to water based finishes for health reasons years ago he does it all the time.

I dont know where you all get this waxed Shellac knowledge from? Zinsser Seal Coat is a 2lb cut for sealing and is dewaxed, look at the lower part of the can Dewaxed!!

Then there is this video from one of the leading finishers that uses Shellac, watch and listen!!
