BTW, when you wipe or brush on the finish, we quite naturally bring more pressure to the edge of the work as we go off the board because we are trying to feel the end of the stroke. That’s why there is more taken off that edge as opposed to the perpendicular edge. This is especially true if you tilt the brush coming off the edge in an effort to keep the brush on the piece longer. It is a natural instinct that does not work in our favor here.

Similarly, because of that action, more finish builds up right there as it goes off the edge…squeezed out of the brush. And the problem is compounded if you aren’t careful with how you remove that excess finish.
