Applying paste wax over poly did not work
I have a pine end table that I have sanded, applied a stain, then brushed on poly, sanded, poly, sanded, poly, etc.
When I got to the wet sanding using a very high grit (I think it was 400 and then 1000 or something), there was a milky appearance to the finish. A buddy of mine said to use paste wax for the final coat. I did this, but the milky appearance did not go away.
From what I've read since, really all I needed was a final coat of poly without sanding afterwords. But now there is paste wax.
Should I try to remove the wax with mineral spirits, sand lightly and then poly? this is what I was thinking of doing.
Was he just plain wrong about using the paste wax?
