Nobody's responded yet, I think we may not be sure what your are asking. Are you asking how many coats or layers of finish it is correct to apply?

If so, then there is no rule beyond sealing the wood. After that it is purely personal preference, or stated differently, go with what looks best to you.

I like a fairly thick glossy clear finish. I think that brings out the color and figure of the wood best. Others like the feel of a very thin finish better. As long as the wood is protected, there is no right or wrong way to do it.
