Barn Door for Closet

I have a barn door that I purchased made of Knotty Alder. I've stained it and put an initial coat of marine varnish on it that I had left over from the front door. Although it looks really good, there is a gritty feel to it. I would like to make it a smooth finish. I know sanding with a fine grit paper well help, but what is the process.....1st coat of varnish, sand, 2nd coat, sand w/ finer coat? Just needing a little clarity on steps to make this thing look good and feel good, lol. Thanks for the advice! EWV8434

For smooth blemish free finish, use wiping varnish. Brush on and wipe off. Slower build but smoother results. For the pinnacle of perfection, use French Polish--build up varnish and then rub out and polish wit pumice to build the mirror perfect surface. Mucho hard work but beautiful. Overkill for a door project.

The grit is from the varnish pulling the excess stain/wood up. Hit with 220 lightly and put a second coat on.
