After painstakingly sanding, tacking, oiling and lacquering the band saw box for LOML’s V-day gift, I see that glue at the seam of the back of the drawer is bleeding through… How can I fix this in the short time I have left. FWIW, I have to work tomorrow and Tuesday to boot, so I REALLY don’t have much time to fix this… I am considering flocking the inside of this drawer, but I was trying to keep the maple showing through…

Anyway, here is a pic of what I am talking about…

is that the finish bleeding through or residual glue from the joint visible because of the finish?

I am thinking that is glue from the joint. But I thought I got it all… Sure doesn’t look that way to me!

if you get the rest of the glue out with a sharp chisel or razor blade/scalpel, can you just apply another coat of lacquer over the top of the last? any place where the oil hasnt absorbed would be pretty small…

LOL, not bad. I solved the problem, more or less. Not exactly the way I wanted to though… I went ahead and flocked it. The flocking I have is the wine color, which was one of our wedding colors… So it is meaningful in its own right… Project posting coming in mere moments. I am in trouble if she starts reading LJs….
