We have a bookcase that we stained and applied a coat of polyurethane. However, after letting it dry for 2 days, it is still "tacky"...not tacky-wet but tacky-so that a glass would not slide across the top. I thought it was maybe a humidity problem (we live in FL) but the bookcase has been inside now for 3 days and no change. Should we just continue to put on a 2nd coat (light sand first) and it will fix itself? (right!) or what do you suggest?
My husband seems to think the high gloss is the problem--Can you put satin polyurethane on top of gloss? Is that even a solution?
