If you type: Z-poxy over shellac . into a search engine you will find some that say it doesn't adhere well to shellac BUT shellac sticks onto Z-poxy ok...??? I try a test portion.

After all, once you seal with shellac, apply the epoxy, and then allow it to cure, you're going to sand it all back to the bare wood. At this point the epoxy should only be in the pores. You can then seal and finish with whatever you like (except, perhaps, for varnish).
I've gone through that routine and have gotten results that we're initially excellent for a French polished surface. Unfortunately, epoxy fills all eventually shrink back a bit after 6 months to a year so that pores are once again evident. Same goes for the wishful thinking of using enough shellac to fill the pores. Shellac dries down extremely slowly over rosewoods and will sink back with time.
