Topic tags/keywords: router maple question finishing

I am a very amateur woodworker, and close to my project, I have changed my mind about the profile of some drawer fronts. They are already stained but not finished. Any harm of re-routing the profile? Will the stain ruin my router bit?

It shouldn’t harm your bit at all. A little mineral spirits should remove any stain from it, but I doubt you’ll see any.

I’ve had to do this per customer request but it happened before I went any further than the stain or dye and it’s never harmed a cutter that I could tell.

it shouldn’t. Stain does not harden like poly and laquer finishes.
