I already put down 3 coats of enduro, sanded to 500, just laid the 4th coat. I intend to rub the finish.

question #1: ive read some people apply 2 coats relatively quickly on the final to get a thick coat, which may help prevent witness lines. Is this necessary / recommended with Enduro? Hard ro tell if enduro burns in or not – it is water borne, but crosslinking. My web search reaults conflict.

Q2: if i should do this, how long between coats?

Are witness lines a problem for semigloss?

I finish in my garage, which is about 80 degrees and 70% h.

I never had very good luck brushing on a finish. I switched to spraying lacquer, and never looked back. Even the smallest projects like boxes get sprayed.

Some people like wipe-on finishes, but they require many coats vs. 2 quick coats inside of a day with sprayed finishes.

Good luck finding your best solution.
