My Dad was a painter all his life . One of the things he used to say was "treat finish work like a good looking woman , nice and easy ,. Don't lay it on thick in the beginning . Let the varnish and the wood get to know each by thinning the first coats and then lay it on . I used to sit with him at the kitchen table while mom was cooking dinner . He would let me drink coffee him while he talked about the day . He used to smell like coffee and coal oil . Dang good painter . Somehow my wife picked up his talent .
What ever you decide to use ,swear by it because it's just too much work to do otherwise
