So I'm working on a white oak floor from early 60s. Sanded off all the old poly. Went from 36g to 60g to 100g and screened the floor with 100g and the floors looked beautiful. I was almost contemplating using a waterborne poly because I liked the color of the white oak so much, but I digress. I am Using Lenmar oil-based Poly in a satin finish. I have applied 3 coats to a room and they are the correct sheen and smooth as glass and hard as a rock. My problem is the floors don't feel smooth. There is not a speck of dust or bubbles anywhere. A good example would be when I run my bare socks across my brothers hardwoods I slide. Here on my floors...not so much. They are kind of catching on the grain of the floor. Its hard to explain. Should I add more coats? What should I do? I feel like I put the coats on super thin, but I don't do this for a living. what are my options to fix this, if any? Thanks in advance everyone! ALso The Lenmar is near fool proof or so I thought. I cant roll or brush it on thick if I tried. it came in quart size containers. the VOC on it is 575 I think. Strong stuff.

How long did you allow the second coat to cure before you applied the third coat?
I think that you would get a better finish if you allow second or third coats of finish to cure at least a few days so the scuffing that you do between coats doesn't rough the floor up, just slight powdering. This may help get it smoother, if you are applying thin coats.
