"He had cleaned, sanded, stained and was in the process of recoating with some more poly..." I would think that here lies the problem...the stain...not the poly. If you lay an oil stain over an existing finish and then try to recoat, adhesion will definately be compromised. Shellac will stick to anything, dirt, oils, chocolate..that doesn't mean it's a good idea. I would never use shellac to finish kitchen cabinets, especially over old poly and then a stain coat....it will not stand up to the rigors of cooking and kitchen cleaners for any length of time. If this guy is "using it all the time" to finish kitchen cabinets,...he's in for trouble.....in my opinion. Not one kitchen cabinet manufacturer that I'm aware of would recommend shellac as a finish...
