Thanks everyone. So far, I’ve heard sand more, scrape, use different glue, and one interesting comment was the vacuum press pressing down the grain to mute it.

Because all my longboards are curved, I’ve never tried to use a scraper. Sanding more isn’t a good option either, because my boards are expensive as it is. I really like the idea of end grain taking too much finish and “browning” out. I don’t want to use different glue because I know the glue I use works in longboards. Many of my clients take my boards to 60MPH so I don’t feel like experimenting with the construction.

Still feel stuck. :-)
