I think I’ve got it down. My second attempt at filling the grain pores came out quite nice. I applied less, scraped more, and worked smaller sections. I must have thought this through in my head for most of the day and was able to carry the ideas into the shop as the application went very nicely, with a dry surface that will require little scuff sanding before i start the repeated lacquer coats.

Even though this is the second application, the pores don’t seem to be fully filled. Do I do it again, or is it acceptable? Will the lacquer coats eventually smooth out without leaving any pore indentations?
