1. In between coats of poly, run your fingers across the surface. If you feel any roughness, it's most likely the grain of the wood.
2. Take a sanding sponge and gently sand until the surface feels smooth.
3. Reapply poly, and repeat if the surface feels smooth.

I only suggest this because it makes dusting a lot easier.

Thanks for the tip. The Polyshade I used is supposed to be a stain and polyurethane in one. I got it because it was cheaper that way and I thought it'd be easier. But dear goodness was it ever a dust magnet :lol: I had to get out the duster between each coat.

It wouldn't have been so bad if the stain had been lighter, but I think next time I use such a dark stain I'll get the stain and polyurethane separately. It'll be more expensive, but I think it'll save me a lot on dusting time.

Oh I know. It's just slightly irksome that after lovingly staining them 4 times I was hoping that the picture would come out just a little bit better.

It looks fine, or possibly inhabited by ghosts. Good work, and you have inspired me to build shelves for my basement once I get a new chopsaw.

Thanks, fastbilly. Glad I could be an inspiration.

UPDATE

Added all the PS2 games and updated the Wii, DS/3DS, PS3, and GBA sections. Barring any new console purchases, that covers everything I own. I suppose next I'll work on the movies....
