I finished my rocking chair with watco danish oil. Everything went well. I kept drying the spots that weeped for 2 days and I sat in it with towels to pull the oil out of the wood. It didn’t appear to be weeping any more. I shipped the rocker to FL and when it got there it had weeped more and is hard/gummy. How should I proceed to get nice finish?

What wood did you use to make the rocker and was kiln dried or air dried?

The leopard wood weeped much more than the walnut. I also moved the rocker from AZ to FL where the humidity changed considerably.

I was a little surprised that the joints where the arm transitions to the back leg has a noticable “step”. This must be a result of the different rates of swelling from the change in humidity.
