I used water based poly on a dinning room table. I don’t have a sprayer, so I used a lambswool applicator. It leaves for the lack of a better word BRUSH strokes. My Q is can I buff those strokes out? Can I use a buffer and wax? Help.

They wont buff out. You will have to block sand it. Do another coat afterwards but use a synthetic water based applicator. You can get them at Home Depot for a couple of dollars. Lambswool is for oil based finishes.

+1 on sanding; for application, an edging pad works well.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you guys. Out of town. Thanks for you help. Will sand and try that edging pad.
