I think you’ll have a problem outside of varnish/shellac. If that table has ever been waxed with some of the aerosol stuff used by many homeowners you might find a problem called “fisheye”. I suggest you give it a thorough cleaning first (TSP works well) then coat it with the shellac. If the cleaning misses any, the shellac will seal it in. If you are 100% posilutely sure it’s never been contaminated with silicone, then your good to go (following the above).
