OK, is it also possible that you sanded through the first coat of finish in some spots? I’m currently working on a tool chest made of red oak and removed some of the stain when sanding, but it was on the edges. I re-stained that piece. In my case it is McCloskey’s Light Oak stain, and MinWax Clear Gloss Polyurethane. Both oil base. It is cold (50° F or less at night) and rainy, and I am waiting 24 hours between staining and finishing. The piece I had to redo, I sprayed because the brush I was using caused bubbles, so the finish was thinner. I switched to a better brush to eliminate the problem.
