You are right to be a bit concerned with going thru the finish – 10 coats sounds like a lot, but film thickness is very dependent on the product and viscosity (solids content) and how “wet” you wiped it on. You do not need or want to sand all glossy areas since you want a satin finish. If you wanted a filled perfectly flat glossy finish its a different story. You have probanly already sanded more than needed. Now rub it down with 0000 steel wool or fine gray and superfine white scotchbrite, you can sub in what you want depending on the actual sheen desired. I use a da polisher for this, makes so much easier/quicker. Auto polishes of different cuts (abrasive size) can be used to adjust sheen, but 0000 steel wool gives a nice satin sheen. Assume u used ob poly. Steel wool can be used after wb coats are all on, but if recoating is needed the steel can rust.
