Topic tags/keywords: maple

I was finishing some 1/4 inch Maple plywood by sanding to 320 and then applying a sanding sealer, one coat of Amber shellac and one coat of clear shellac. This obtained the exact color I was looking for. Unfortunately I had a water line break above my shop and the panel got sprayed. This was about 1/2 hour after the final cost was applied. It resulted in a very spotted and blotchy surface. I have two questions:
1. can I sand it back to get rid of the surface spotting and then reseal and start over.
2. Is it worth it or should I scrap it and recut another panel

Try a spot, you have nothing to lose. I think you should be able to sand it back.
As long as you don’t go thru the amber coat.

Checked out the website. Good information but I am using shellac that says to use ammonia for cleanup. I don’t think
Procedures in the video will help at this point

Sanded it back to the amber layer. This was quite dull so I applied a very thin coat waited 1hour then added another layer of clear de waxed shellac and it seems to have worked. When this is finished I will post it to my projects page. Thank for the support fellows.
