After seeing the Woodworking for Mere Mortals video on wooden neckties I had to make one. So got some thin stock at Woodcraft, Birds Eye Maple and Bolivian Rosewood. Everything was going fine til I was waiting for the third/final coat of Arm-R-Seal to dry that I realized most of the pieces had some tackiness to them. I don’t recall noticing this til the final coat.
I’ve researched online and it looks like Rosewood tends to be oily and doesn’t dry well/ever, which I was unaware of before hand unfortunately.
SO, now that the Arm-R-Seal is already on, what are my possible options as far as getting rid of the tackiness and producing a nice end result?
From what I’ve read, my only real option is to take off the finish, use shellac and then finish with poly. Let me know your thoughts about this.
Thanks in advance!
