Polyurethane


I assume your using water based polyurethane?
Problem with polyurethane is that they harder to repair. The only way to remove it is to strip it off and start over or sand.

I'm using oil base and thinning it with mineral sprits.

Polyurethane


Oil base polyurethane are even harder to fix than water base.


First of all how deep it brush strokes?
Too deep, it will be dificult to sand leveled.
If you can post photos, it would be helpful

The problem I see people do is they over brush, not letting it flow itself. This cause brush strokes to shown when dry.
Apply it once, backbrush once or twice and move on.
