« Part 8: Inlay glued, but probs ensue Part 9 of Corner Inlay Table series Part 10: Think we're ready to move on »

Ok – the top is now sanded back down. Current problem:

  • Sides of inlay groove – where the stain got into the grooves – soaked into the exposed end grain. This has created an “outline” in places along the inlay.
    • By the way – the darker “discolor” is only mineral spirits not quite dried

The top is sanded back down to 220. Used mineral spirits to whisk off last of dust.

And the next tasks:
  • 2 coats of 1/2 lb cut dewaxed shellac as a sealer for blotch.
    • This also has to be done to the parent table base before staining
  • Carefully coat the inlay with waxy shellac to prevent stain from sticking to the inlay
    • This will have to be tested on working sample
  • Glue inlay into second table top (nested)
    • Flush
  • Seal top (base pre-sealed before glue-up to aid squeeze-out clean-up)

-- There are many tempting parking places on the road to success
