I think what your are doing; ” I would normally finish …......with a couple of coats of shellac followed by a finishing coat of beeswax,...” should work well. I would substitute carnauba wax for the beeswax because it produces a harder finish.

Your other choice would be a hand applied finishing compound composed of a combination of oils, wax, and shellac. I don’t know what their commercial brand names would be in Australia but you could research and make your own.
