No you can not use the sealer over the finish as it will not do any good and may not adhear either. It sounds as if you are putting the finish on to heavy and that is why you have sags or you just need to go back and check it before it dries to much and take care of them then.

I like using h irshfields 1 hour varnish if I have to do this by hand a sealer is exactly as it says seals the wood if you already used a product you cant use sealer as it does no good.
Why it is rough for you have no idea as to I can't see it and you are doing everything correct it sounds like.
