Wiping varnish over very light coat of BLO.  Arm-R-Seal or Waterlox for the varnish.

Shellac looks good. 

Best to just experiment and decide for yourself.
Everything is a prototype so its a one of a kind.

I typically sand to 320 , apply one coat of minwax neutral followed by 3 to 6 coats of Sherman Williams LowVOC Lacquer, medium rub effect. I wet sand in between each coat with 400 wet dry and tack before spraying each coat with HVLP
