Lightning I didn’t sand after I put the finish on so that’s not the problem.
I thinking that the problem is the result of over sanding. I usually only sand to 150 grit, but on this project I sanded to 180. I believe that the 180 grit polished the wood to much and on those spots the stain did not soak in and when I wiped on the finish the stain came off.
Pinto, I agree with you that spraying is the way to go but I’m not set up for that.
