I also use a finer sandpaper (600 maybe or 00 to 000 wool equivalent) on the last coat and then add ~2 coats of carnuba for a final polish.
Once done flat pieces are smooth enough that I can't stack them if there is any slope.
The great thing about this is that it works pretty well for those of us with less than optimal finishing conditions, the bad thing is that its tedious as all get out.
When I get to the final coats I switch from 400 paper to 0000 steel wool.
