I’ve built two of these shelves for a friend of mine who owns an Espresso Stand. Since the shelves will be mounted outside I thaought a good finish would be acrylic. And for the most part it looks pretty nice. Except for the fact that near the end of the curing of the acrylic, the cedar wood released a buch of bubble that I could not make go away with the torch. the one I tried ended up in a big lump.
My question is to anyone who has had this problem. Is there a way to sand this type of finish and repair it to the clear sheen that it should be? Or do I need to start all over?
Hind sight tells me I should have sealed the would with a sealer before putting the acrylic on. But that usually the way I do things. Do it once, or twice, or three times, then do it right.
