I don’t see a problem with your proposed method. My only suggestion is that you might want to try a water-based poly if you are trying to keep the maple as light as possible. As I’m sure you know, oil-based poly tends to give a slightly yellow tint to light-colored woods. Water-based clear finishes are considerably clearer, in my experience.
