You didn t mention sanding between coats. I always lightly sand w/ 400 grit sandpaper between coats. Another factor with satin finishes is the flatting agent that is in it, it has to to be thoroughly stirred or it settles to the bottom and as you work your way down the can you get more and more of it to the point that you are getting too much on your final coat.

In my original post I said:
The first 4 coats went on relatively well. I made sure to sand in between each coat with 500 grit sandpaper and then wiped off the dust with a rag and a little bit of mineral spirits on it.

Also, I made sure to stir before and during the application process.

I just sanded the table again and put on a light coat again (wiped) as I did with the first 4 coats that produced very little streaking. Hopefully this will reset things and the streaks won’t be as noticeable. I’ll update after it dries.
Thanks all.
