Stained wood is still tacky?

My first experience with stain has me thinking that I missed a step somewhere.

I was making the top of a garbage can cabinet and decided to stain the wood. I sanded it smooth then applied the stain with a cloth. I wiped off the excess stain and waited about 30 minutes before spraying it with some clear coat. I let that set overnight in the garage and applied another coat of clear coat on my way to work. It never ended up feeling dry.

Did I not let it dry long enough before the clear coat?
Did I apply too much clear coat?
Would the cold temperatures of the garage make a difference in the drying/curing process?
Should I have sanded the completed product?

Jay Bates has a playlist on YouTube that helped me understand Sketchup pretty well. Good luck!

Here's what I built last year for my portable table saw. It's inspired by Ron Paulk's Ultimate Workbench.
