Default Re: Polyurethane Sanding Question

Iíve made a few things and decided to go back to polyeurathane for my main project (record changer plinth). It fills the grain quite well and the amber tint it applies is something I like a lot.

Iíve applied the first coat to all of my pieces, motor board, back and sides.

So, Back to the threads original title, I have various runs and specs to ďde- nibĒ. BUT, as this is the first coat, itís clear in some areas the varnish has really sunk into the veneer. So I think a light sand to de-nib is too risky, if I remove any of the stain then once more my project is destroyed (Iíve redone various aspects of this many times as I rode the learning curve!).

Will it be ok to apply another coat and then begin the sanding between coats after that? Logic tells me this is safer and I canít see any problems myself, but thought worth asking you learn-ed gentlemen

Best regards
