+1 Couple coats of blonde or amber shellac made from flakes so you control the color, and then 2 coats WB poly.
No offense odor.

Varathane WB Poly adds zero color (hence the shellac), and can be brushed on. Light glycol/alcohol odor. It has been very durable for me on several drawer boxes.

if was going to spray, would use commercial WB catalyzed lacquer from Gemini or Target. Can not recommend General Finishes WB, except maybe the commercial Enduro products. But even commercial Enduro WB poly is not as good as above options.

Best Luck!
