I'm re doing my countertop with ceramic tiles and wood trim along the edge....can I seal and cover the whole countertop with Varnish or shellac?
I want a shiny, thick, hard coat to protect the tiles/grout.

Ceramic/porcelain tiles don't need a protective coating. A sealer can be used for any grout lines. You could though do a pour on epoxy.
Tile countertop needs no more protection than a dinner plate.
There's a silicone product which soaks into the grout lines and wateproofs them but good. Had a pro tile guy do the tub surround up to 84". Beautiful craftsmanship. I got to paint the grout lines 3X over a week. Gave new meaning to the word "tedious."
