I can't say I have ever had a problem with brush strokes using the polycrylic. I did learn a long time ago though you NEVER use a foam brush. It leaves bubbles everywhere.

True, the foam brush is not meant for polycrylic.

I use Polycrylic a lot on walnut because it keeps it from fading in sunny areas. Very easy to spray if it's  not to hot. Getting  ready to build a walnut table also but looking for something that has a deeper look when rubbed out. I may try the target coating  mentioned here. Does that provide decent U V protection ? 
Bill the table looks great.

Their EM9300 has UV protection.  It is marketed as an exterior urethane, but it can be used indoors.

I’ve used polycrylic on walnut and cherry in the past and wasn’t happy with it. The color of the finish isn’t truly clear and I could detect a bluish tint. And, the resulting color of the wood didn’t “deepen” like with an oil based product. 
But on Maple, I did like it because the color of the wood remained “white” rather than turning amber.

Thanks, bg.  Its Minwax oil based satin poly.  I've had great luck with it on my personal dining tables.  With 5 coats, its impervious to water stains.
