i agree with c-man. i never use wax. dont even keep it in the shop. if your gonna remove it why bother? also you must be brushing on your poly. if you spray it you can get a glass finish without all that extra work.
with that said you pc looks very nice

The wax I find works perfectly as a lubricant for polishing with steel wool, I know I take it off later, but I haven't been able to get a similar finish without the wax. The poly I get is really thick, if I thin it out to spray, it becomes a little too thin and I have to be really careful with runs. I get a similar finish spraying laquer but I generally put on a few more coats.

if you spray right there should be no polishing. you might try using a bit of penitrol instead of thinner. and a bit of japan dryer to help set up b4 runs.

Generally I get a very good finish with just spraying, acceptable for most of the furniture I make and sell. In this case because the top needed to be poly and took ages to dry, there was a fair amount of dust settling on the top that needed to be taken off.

Here in South Africa, my local supplier hasn't even heard of penitrol never mind stocking it. After some googling we found a local product that did a similar job, but for now I'll stick with what I know.

Same goes for japan dryer, there's a local product that I actually did try out once but wasn't happy with the results.

thanks for the advice though
