I'm just about finished building the new kitchen cabinets. Frames are
pine and panels are birch plywood. Looking to get a Danish effect when
finished. I'm considering using just two or three coats of satin poly.
Any drawbacks to this approach? Alternative would be two coats of
Watco followed by two of poly.
SSuggested often is to build the finish with gloss, doesn't obscure
grain, and final coat with sheen of choice. Alternate route use gloss
for all then rub after cure time for sheen wanted.

Test on some scrap is the standard response for nearly all finishing
questions. In a kitchen, I think you want a waterborn (so called
"Waterbase Poly") finish for the topcoat.
I'd suggest waterbase over Oil-Varnish (Danish Oil for one) for that,
but you'll need to test that they play nice together.
