Stain and shellac sample board

I have been working some pretty early mornings since Sunday, so with the clocks being turned back on Sunday and being up at 3 am, you can probably imagine the body trying to adjust. Not my cup of tea.  I have not been idle, either.  I stained a small scrap of poplar divided into three sections by blue tape.  I stained all three with General Finishes Java Gel Stain.  After about two days, I put two coats of blonde dewaxed shellac on the last two portions. I left the first section without the top coat of shellac for comparison.

The top portion is without shellac, while the remaining two portions were applied with two coats of shellac.  Below is the original photo of the board without shellac for a comparison since the lighting is not showing it quite clearly .
