WTF doesn't coat like CA does. Gotta give it a bit of time to dry between coats. Depending on what your doing that can be 2 - 10 min. with 8 coats it should pretty good as is, I lightly sand with 3000 grit between coast. If you want a really good shine, go straight to a high speed buff or use a plastic polish like Mothers or Novus. That usually works for me. Also, I sand the wood down to 2000 grit before applying WTF.

I agree with BeeAMaker, let it dry (each coat and after the last coat). I know everyone wants to finish quickly, but leave it overnight. Sand it with 1000 grit and polish. Expect a bright shine.
