The other day I was re-sawing some un-dryed red oak. I get the stuff from a mill down the road for next to nothing. I usually cut to rough demensions and let dry in the attic for a few month.

I left a board face down on the saw for about 5 minutes. Now there is a dark brown stain. No rust, just a dark stain.

I keep the top well treated with Johnson’s past wax and have not had problems with rust or staining before.

Any suggestions on removing the stain?

I’ve heard good things about bar keeper’s friend but have never used it myself. I’m used to dealing with rust not other kinds of stains.

You might a little mineral spirits and a scotch brite pad under your sander. If that doesn’t do it, try switching to fine grit sandpaper. You’ll need to re-apply the wax when done.
