Between two and four, depending on how you want it to look and how much wear it will get. A table top would benefit from more coats than a bookshelf, for example.

Whatever you do, make sure that all of the solids are dissolved properly, by thorough shaking or stirring - if it's been in storage for a while you can sometimes get a very solid layer at the bottom of the tin.

For most furniture I'd be inclined to do the full four. And wax over the top.
