Oil probably will cure eventually, but he is using Polycrylic, which I believe is water based. At the very best, your drying time will increase drastically. This will ensure you have PLENTY of dust nibs to sand out. :) In addition with water based finishes, there is sort of an “open” time to apply subsequent coats. Once that is exceeded, you need to really scuff it up. It would be tough to tell if you are in the window or not when you are that far outside the manufacturers recommendation.
