Ah screw it... on my way to work just now I decided that I'm gonna bite the bullet and start from scratch - I just liked it better before and can't help it. It's annoying as hell but well, I guess I'm not the first one to sand down after almost being there...
Interestingly, I only sanded once throughout the entire process (after Tru Oil and Sheen). In sum, the problem was that the orange peel (no clue why that happened to that extent anyway) forced me to apply more force in level sanding than I wanted to. This in turn led to sanding through on some spots and toning down the doghair more than I wanted.
The only thing I will change when redoing it is to NOT sand at all and apply the sheen 30 days after Tru-Oil is dried without any level sanding. That means:
- 4 coats of India ink
- 1 coat of sanding sealer
- rubbing in the silver lacquer
- 10 coats of tru oil
- 2 coats of sheen
...no sanding whatsoever.
@Stratamania may I ask your opinion on the above?
