Back to your original question.
Allow at least 72 hrs to dry, regardless of how it feels to the touch or the can’s instructions. A week or two would be even better. You’ve applied quite a bit more than you need and I wouldn’t be surprised if you’ll see some seeping out of the edges of the ply.
Even after it’s fully cured, the moisture resistance is almost nil. You’ll need a top coat of poly or a good varnish, as lumberjoe advises.
