Topic tags/keywords: question sap

I put four coats of an oil-based clear wood finish on a solid Mahogany door, which was not solid mahogany for I had to cut four windows in it, and its bleeding sap in one area. I think the pine is leaking,regardless, I hung the door and everything was fine. I came back the next day and it was bleeding through.It receives full afternoon and evening sun and the customer is of course not happy. Should I sand that area and seal the wound ? If so what do you ya’ll recommend ? I am in north Texas and all we have are 100 degree days, so I am limited with temperature control [ my shop doesn’t have air-condition].Thank you for any advice

So, you are telling us it is mahogany veneer over pine?? Did you seal the pine when you made the openings for the windows? I probably wouldn’t have done this but if that is the case then it might have helped. I am 55 miles from your area and I can verify you are putting some heat on that door.

If it was me Ron, I’d take that door right back to them. That’s an inferior door. You shouldn’t have to deal with sap leaking from the inside.
Got the same heat here…east side of the state….40 some days over 100.

I would agree with Gary unless you have modified the door to install the windows.

can you spray it with one of those stain/sealer combo finish things. This might make it a little darker. anything to salvage the door at this point. The store might still work with you since it is not in the area you cut.

I will try that,thanks for the advice. The door cost $2300 I doubt they will work with me. On another note ,is there any woodworking clubs in your area. Such as get-togethers to discuss or demonstrate jigs,tricks or networking for jobs?

Not that I am aware of. There is a club for everything else but not woodworkers. Crafters meet and bee keepers but not woodworkers. Maybe we should start a club.

I would be open to it. They have a wood-turners club here,but I am not really into that,except turning my own pulls. I am very interested in starting one, 55 miles is not far. I am originally from Pennsylvania and they have clubs but nothing here.

I live in Duncan Oklahoma. I saw that you live in Iowa Park. That might be a little more than 55 miles. I think we figure 55 miles from WF.

Wonder if there would be any interest in Lawton? I went to the Tech school in Moore/Norman a couple of weeks ago. They have all kinds of classes there that we don’t have at our local school. I was with my wife and I was just browsing brochures while she was on school business. They have a shop with a dozen turning lathes. I think our local school shop has one. Hard to generate interest in this climate (no tools I mean).
