I guess we have different views of what we are trying to accomplish. My way of looking at it using shellac under any decent clear finish is not necessary. Unless your trying to control blotchy wood that don’t take stain evenly.
The other application for can shellac would be to block Old Douglas fir odors before painting inside a closet.
Rich and I have had this discussion about the purity of canned shellac. If you really have used fresh flakes then you know the difference.
I’m also not sure what grain pop means I don’t see anything in the drawer sides that really merits any effort. Most put all the efforts in the drawer fronts.
I won’t try to help anymore since I don’t know what your trying to accomplish.
Good Luck always
