looking for an appropriate top coat sealer for a traditional Shellac stock finish. Read about possibly using an oil varnish overtop.or a wax coat to waterproof the shellac so it doesn't go cloudy. I also know not to use harsh cleaners or alcohol near it to keep the shellac from dissolving away

Any good oil varnish will seal it. Rough it up first, or use scotchbrite to apply the oil.
Tung oil, spar, etc. personally I use Chamber’s oil finish.
shellac is a great sealer, but a poor exterior finish.
