I built a nightstand / bedside table to go with the bed that I made. Today, I found this:
I’m not sure how I could apply a coat of stain, 4 coats of finish and two coats of wax and never notice this! I’ve used the same combination of stain / finish / wax on other projects and never had a problem.
Stain: 1 coat of Minwax Golden Oak Stain 210B – applied with a cotton rag
Finish: 4 coats of Deft 10901 Satin Water Wood Finish – applied with an HVLP sprayer
Wax: 2 Coats of good ole Johnson’s Paste Wax
Any idea what may have caused this but more importantly, how should I approach fixing this eye sore? Am I going to have to sand the top and edges and reapply the stain and refinish? I’ve seen articles posted in the WW mags on fixing finishing problems but I don’t know where to find one of them at the moment. If you know of a good one, please let me know.
It almost looks like a glue blotch but I can’t see how it could be. After I glued up the top panel, I planed it to thickness, flat and parallel, scraped it and a quick hand sanding @ 220. I’m at a complete loss as to what happened.
Thanks for your help.
I uploaded a video to YouTube of the bedside table. I made it for my Mother and Father, they like to keep up-to-date with the goings on around here, so it’s more of a “hello mom and dad” type of video than a woodworking video but it does show the blotch.
