Best finish over shellac for heavy use?

Martha asked 5 years ago

I have a table from the 60s with a shellac finish. I would like to make it water resistant, but don’t want to strip it and lose the current stain. I’m not a big fan of polyurethane, only because it chips over time and cannot be repaired. What do you recommend? Can Tung or Danish oils be applied over shellac?
