I don’t personally see any need to put on anything except shellac. The crib you can see in my projects was finished with only shellac, been in use for almost a year and a half now, no problems yet. One spot under the sippy cup got some water damage after my daughter splashed water around and my wife let the cup sit in the puddle

But I don’t see any problems since shellac is so easy to sand and refinish, even just the trouble spot.

At the current rate, re finishing a 2×2” every couple of years seems like a non-issue, especially since I never have to wonder if the finish I am using is actually food safe – in shellac’s case I know for a fact that it is
