I like Mylands for small items. My process is.
Coat with shellac and let dry about 20 minutes. Dampen some 4-0 with DNA and burnish. Check for any pits/pores. Coat and burnish again if necessary.
You should be able to get a good hard shellac fininsh pretty rapidly.
Try to let it cure a couple of hours. The Mylands is shellac based so even if not fully cured it doesn't matter, you are just building up coats. You should not need any drying time between coats of Mylands as it dries in a few seconds.

Now after all of that I do not know if you can go over the salad bowl finish that quickly or not. Maybe if you burnish it with dry 4-0 before starting back with shellac.

Good luck with it.
