I heartedly second using shellac spray.

I often pick up a can or two when I am in Home Depot. They carry the Zinsser Bulls Eye spray shellac cans. It gets used for a large fraction of things I build, and essentially everything I build for the shop. I spray it on shelves, tables, cabinets, tool hanging brackets, you name it.

I have a sacrificial sheet of tempered hardboard on one work surface. It is 3/16” think. A full 4×8 sheet is less than $15 at the big DIY-lumber stores. My main bench is covered with unfinished plywood that can be replaced if ever needed.
