Welcome to the Family Michael!
Do you not have any scraps left over?
I agree with Vaughn that there should be no issues, but I also agree that I'd not want to have to start over on $200 worth of wood.
Sand the scrap piece the same way you have the table, then try finishing it, and see what happens?
You might want to put a thinned coat of the finish on first, it will go into the wood and seal it up, so the next coat will not take as much product to cover it, the thinned coat will cost less than a regular coat (thinner is cheaper than Lacquer).
Lightly hand sand between coats, and make sure you really clean up the dust before you put the next coat on.
