RustOleum Cabinet Transformation: Can I start over after applying bonding coat?

I have one kitchen cabinet door I'm using as my test subject. I cleaned it with a degreasing product, then deglossed. Surface still looked a bit "glossy," so did the deglossing again. Surface was still somewhat shiny but not as shiny as other kitchen cabinets, so I proceeded with the bond coat (Espresso). Having done all that, I then found this forum and, based on what I read here, I think I should have sanded the door before deglossing. Presuming that is the case and that, as a result, my unfortunate test subject door will start to flake, chip, peel or otherwise disintegrate, can I start all over on my test door? If so, would the appropriate steps be: sand the now bond-coated surface, degloss, maybe degloss again, then reapply bond coat? Appreciate any guidance you may be able to give. Cabinets are heavily-grained oak with (I suspect) polyurethane coating.

   Some existing finishes may consist of a high quality industrial coating like lacquer that may need a little help with the deglossing stage.  Lightly sanding before wiping the deglosser is the solution for this.

   You should not have any adverse effects on the door that you've already base coated - so I would just leave it.  This product is specially strong when the clear top coat is applied. Also, because this is a latex product (water based) it may take several days to cure or harden.
