Let it dry hard, real hard. Give it a light sanding with 600 grit wet dry paper. Thin the poly down super thin. Get a piece of polyester cloth and fold so you get a 3-4 inch fold. Dip in the thin poly and use the fold as a squeegee to move the poly along the table top. If you can look across the top from the side you can see where you need to apply the varnish to give it complete coverage.

I’ve used this method for years and have been able to achieve extremely smooth finishes. I’ve also put the fold inside a piece of pantyhose to prevent lint in the finish.

Best of luck.
