My daughter put two coats of finish on her dining room table. The table was in bad shape, having worn off most of the varnish. She sanded with a hand sander and then applied two coats of the finish that is a varnish and stain all in one. She got the stain to match her table legs. Then, between coats, I told her to sand with cardboard, since we had no steel wool in the house. Between coats, it is desirable to just use a little bit of abrasion to knock down any highs to make it satin smooth. It worked perfectly! No annoying steel wools "pieces" left stuck in the finish either!
