I’m working on building an Arts and Crafts style Panel bed. The bed is inspired by the Stickley Bed pictured below. There’s three videos in the series so far, and I hope to have more out soon. The quartersawn white oak grain on this wood I have looks really good in person, and I’m excited to see the bed come together.

I am hoping someone can help me with this. Recently when I have been finishing my projects I have noticed little black spots form on the wood. I figure it was mold that had grown on the wood since my shop in our basement. So the next time I finished a project I put the dehumidifier in the room and used wood fresh from the lumber yard. The same thing happened!!! Does anyone know what this is or have run into it before?
