Is it OK to (wet) sand in between stain coats?
I'm refinishing a dresser and I've got 2 stain coats on now but it's not quite where I want it to be, so I'm going to do a final coat tomorrow. I'm staining outside and the top has picked up some rough spots from dust, bugs etc that i'd like to get rid of before the final coat and my finish, but the stain I'm using (Minwax oil stain) says not to sand.
What's the worst case scenario for going over it with some 320 or 600 paper or even wetsanding with those papers? Am I going to do some serious damage or is Minwax just telling me I don't have to sand, not that I absolutely cannot sand.
