How long?

Painting a baltic birch plywood bookcase, poplar trim, using Sherwin Williams Pro Classic oil based paint. There are 2 coats of Sherwin Williams multi-purpose oil based primer underneath.

How long do I need to wait to sand between the coats now? I have the first coat on, just last night.

How long?

Depending on humidity and so forth. I usually wait a day with oil based products. Then I try an obscure corner and if the paper is picking up any wet paint, I wait longer.
