A year ago at this time I was doing an officeful of stuff out of Juniper, and matching the existing satin finish. I used Minwax Polycrilic, the subject here.

Here’s what I developed: I let the first coat dry overnight and then sanded it with an oscillating sander, 220x. Seems aggressive, I know, but it gave me a great flat surface with flatness and the subsequent coats went on as described, lightly hand sanded between, using the 2 – 3 hours dry time.

The results were high on the acceptable meter.
