Just playing Devil’s Advocate here, but one of my past projects here is a kitchen built-in with an accompanying kitchen table.

My finishing schedule was water based dye, Zinser shellac based sanding sealer, Varathane gel stain (as a glaze), the sanding sealer again, then a few coats of Minwax polycrylic. I used a higher sheen, but it can be had in satin.

I did that project 6 years ago. Everything, including the “temporary” plywood tabletop is holding up well.
