How does this finish build? Only one or two coats needed or several more?

 Apply at room temp. It settles out in a glass like coating, much thicker than a normal finish. Immediately place it in the sun, turning after a few minutes. It does harden enough to keep from running in the first minute. I turned my piece 4 times to allow all sides to get the sun. It seems tacky, however you can sand it down to remove any area flaws. I hand sand. 

 If you have NO flaws......one coat will do.

I'm still learning, but I like the way it covers.

So how big of a blank do you start with?

The board I used was one I selected and glued to make the blank. I played with it until I felt I got a good mating pair and glued into a piece 1 and a half inches sq x 7 in.
