  1. I really appreciate your attention guys, here’s an update...I filled in the voids initially using an oversized toothpick, then on the fly switched to the tip of a 1" foam brush. Some voids/cracks still remained after drying, so my plan was to sand the excess flat then dab the voids a second time, but had a hard time getting things flat. Things seemed to get more jagged and uneven the more I sanded ( if there is a next time, I’ll buy a scraper). At this point I was ready to grab my 8’ step ladder and Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka [ jump] off the top rung onto the middle of the table...Luckily my wife was around to talk me outta that and I decided to just add another full coat then pray to the wood finishing Gods. That one coat turned into two after my beautiful assistant carried the brush over the table leaving two drops of poly on the freshly laid first coat...which may have been a blessing because 90% of the voids/cracks filled in and the jagged/uneven looking sand job dissipated after the 2nd coat. The table still has a couple small dimples along a couple seems, but improved a lot and is good enough for my personal use. My question now is if I applied, don’t laugh, 9 coats on the top side (I probably sanded at least one coat off thru the entire process) do I need to apply an equal amount on the bottom side? I only did four on the bottom side because that was my plan for the top...Thanks in advance for any comments
  2. Can I get a decent card scraper at a box store? Do you have a recommended brand? I appreciate all your comments guys
  3. What do you considered cured well? I’ve heard anywhere from 4hrs to a week...Thank you for your input
  4. I just laid down my 7th coat of oil base polyurethane (applied with a brush) on a dinning room table made from 1x6’s of solid oak. I mistakenly didn’t put wood filler in the tiny cracks between the boards before finishing and still have crevasses in a few spots (see pic attached)...Can I thin my poly with mineral spirits, and use the homemade wipe-on poly to only fill the crevasses or will this make the table permanently uneven?
