Yes to much sanding, jdmaher has it right. But I don’t use those foam brushes, doesn’t matter if its a chess board or a fine sailing vessel I use a good china bristle brush (personal preference), applying varnish (generic term) is an art form and not really that hard. AS jd also mentioned self leveling will take care of most your problem, I believe musical instrument are usually sprayed, I could be wrong, but the same look can be achieved with a brush, You may also be applying to thin of a coat. One more thing stick to the old school stuff all these hybrid this polly that ect..ect.. are just new twist on some very basic products that have been around for ever. I am a painter by trade, learned wood finish’s from cabinet makers and woodworkers, paint manufactures are the sorriest sobs out there when it comes to marketing. do the research, and take all this advice from some of these ppl with a grain of salt its not that complicated once you understand the very basics. good luck , have fun
