This is a pretty basic question, but can I use water based polyurethane as a top coat if I have used shellac as a sealer/base coat? I intend to use the shellac as a carrier for a small amount of alcohol based stain to provide a slight tinting/staining of a cherry cabinet but I need the protection that polyurethane provides, thus the need for the double coats. Are they all compatible?? Thanks
