I’m currently finishing a walnut kitchen table. I have three coats of gloss Arm R Seal on it now. Usually, I use satin Arm R Seal for my final coat. I did that on the bottom of the table, but it seemed to cloud the grain. I liked it better when it was gloss, before I did the satin final coat.
I havent really noticed that before, but I usually work with stained oak, so maybe the gnarly grain of the walnut top makes me notice it more?
I’m reasonably certain I dont want to leave it super glossy like it is now. My question is, do you think I’d get better results by rubbing the gloss finish to a more satin sheen rather than top coating it with satin arm r seal?
