did you mention give it more time? HAHAHA!! I agree. It would be reeeeeeal tricky to try to remove the undried topcoat and if Peter waits, he will likely have his finish dry just fine. May take a while though Pete but it’ll save ya a lot of aggravation trying to “fix” the problem. I STill think it wont hurt to circulate air around that work piece. I read a series of posts not too long ago on WoodWeb where a professional cabinet shop was applying varnish on some sample boards and the area of the shop where they kept the samples was pretty cold. they left them there over night, damp with varnish. when they came back the next day, the boards were bone dry despite thefact that the temp IN THE SHOP in the area where the samples were kept was under 40 degrees. Point is: solvent will flash off regardless of the air temp if you add circulating air which helps finishes like varnish and shellac dry faster. It works well with lacquer too. Water bornes are more finicky as we all know.
