I am building a white pine dining room table and used Watco dark walnut danish

and thick build up. My plan is to sand off tonight, and use Minwax because of
its thinner consistency. Any problems to avoid?

You are starting to get rag smears because the wood is no longer soaking
up the excess.

Switching brands probably will not yield better results.
You may try using a "good quality" foam brush, like Wooster, to apply a
thick even coat.
