One Coat of Wax Does the Trick
Is there any reason to apply more than one coat of wax over a finish?

No. One Coat is all you need. Although wax provides a little more water resistance to a finish like shellac, its main benefit is the sheen and tactile surface it leaves behind. It just invites a touch. To maintain its appeal, just put down a fresh coat over the old one once a year.
