Have you used that one under poly before.
I’ve heard it doesn’t play well with a top coat too much wax. But I’ve also others say it’s not a problem.
I use shellac when I can. I buy flakes and buttons from the shellac shack. It dries much harder then the can stuff.

Good Luck on your project

+1. Make sure that the shellac is dewaxed if you are going to put poly over it. If you used the Zinsser canned shellac, it is NOT dewaxed. Their Sealcoat IS dewaxed but your picture doesn’t look like a sealcoat. IMO, if you are going to put poly on it anyway, the shellac probably isn’t necessary.
