I just finished a bookcase using Minwax Fast Drying Polyurethane. This will be my 2nd project using polyurethane. It really does dry fast. I wipe a light coat on with a rag. Then I sand with 220 sandpaper by hand. I do it very light just to get the bumps out then wipe on another light coat. I do this 3 to 4 times until it is smooth to the touch. I think it came out really nice. So nice I'm not sure I can sell it hehe.
