I ll never apply a beautiful finish to the underside of a table, or cabinet, or etc. Not debunked. Tens of thousands of pieces survive from a time where it was so.

Got that much time? It s a hobby, go for it. Trouble asked for, (it ll never come).

I usually slap on a coat of shellac. I figure that any warping is due to moisture absorption, so any way I seal the underside from moisture is fine. Shellac dries fast and I usually apply a coat of shellac for my first coat of any clear finish. So it all fits my process.
