workbench surface

I'm in the process of building a new workbench for the woodshop. The top is recycled maple. What is the best sealer for this? I'm thinking about plain old shellac. Not the dewaxed type. Any better ideas?
I'm not looking for pretty. Just very functional and easy to maintain.

I used wipe on poly 2 coats with butchers wax afterwards. The finish is great and easy to clean. Hope this helps.
