I build small decorative boxes, not furniture so the small scale lends itself well to using straight up MinWax gloss polyurethane applied with a paper towel, let it soak in for a little while and then rub it off with more paper towels.
After it dries I use a white 3M pad to smooth it up and reapply more polyurethane the same way.
Two maybe three applications gives a very smooth low sheen finish.
A couple applications of paste wax rubbed on with a white 3M pad and buffed with a microfiber towel makes it feel silky soft to the touch.
