Dear Ron6519, There is three coats...maybe even a fourth, and the directions say no more than 4 coats...but i cannot guarantee i waited 4 hrs between the first and second...i waited a few day between the thsecond and the third...I used the Behr Wet-Look Sealer, Hi-Gloss No. 985. The table has that beautiful wet look, but no's been terribly humid and raining since i applied this seal...EVERYDAY...does this help???
