DCollison: Think of the resin on the redwood burl coffee table: Nothing can beat that for gloss.

If I could wish away the WB, I would, and encourage you to finish the piece with table top epoxy resin.

I don’t know how one would get the WB off.

Might we see a pic of the piece? It might help…

In general, I agree with Pete about scarifying a surface to gain adhesion with the next coat. However, that can be a chemical bond if your timing is correct. Often solvent varnish labels will advise you to recoat in, say, 3 – 6 hours (without sanding); if it goes over that, you must wait say, 12 hours (so the finish can harden thoroughly) and then sand and recoat.
