Oh yeah, after being lazy the last couple of days, tonight I sanded the first coat of poly and put on a second coat. I have never sanded poly for a second coat before and when I started I was seeing small scratches with the 220 sandpaper. I started to worry, but followed through. Wiped it all down with a tack cloth, man that was tacky. Even my hands were super tacky afterwards. I then started the second coat and boy was I surprised. It was looking like glass, to me anyway. The first coat seemed to soak in a lot, but this coat really shined. Sure it is still wet, but I was happy at the gloss. We will see what it looks like when dry.
The first coat got a rough feeling when dry, will the second coat stay smooth or will it also rough up? Who knows I may hit it again with another coat. I know it is a shop cart, but it also practice finishing so it may coat it up super glossy.
Pictures to come later.
