I have contractors working at my house putting in bedrooms in my lower level. The contractor trusted a new helper to stain all the pine trim and doors and it was a mess! The color did not match the existing woodwork and worse yet, when you ran your hand over the wood, it felt very rough (like you would get splinters). I asked that it be re-done. The contractor had the professional painter re-do it all. He got the color right but it still feels rough. Not smooth like the other woodwork. He said he sanded by hand and really took his time. I have a lot of pine in my house and I’m wondering why the new wood would be so rough. Did the 1st guy totally screw it up? Should they have started over instead of trying to use the wood that was done incorrectly the 1st time? Is it a poor quality in wood? is there any way to fix it at this point?

Thanks for any advice you can give.
