When you say “one coat” – do you mean just that? A single coat of finish, then let it dry etc etc?
I too like the end grain to have a somewhat similar finish to the “flat” wood.
I’ve never used “Arm R Seal” (not available here), but with oils and varnishes I just keep adding very thin coats of finish until it either stops absorbing, or starts to get sticky. Be careful when you get to the rub-down – it may take longer than 24 hours to harden up.
