I have just finished a changing table for my grandson that is due to be born later this month. I made it out of walnut and I put one coat of Dark Walnut Danish Oil by Watco on just to really blend all the colors together, then after sanding with 400 grit I put a second coat of Natural or Clear Danish Oil by Watco. Now there are a couple of places on the top that are really shine, the spots almost look like a couple of areas that are still wet but they are not. I have never had that happen to me before and I am not sure what happened. Any body have any idea of what I did to make it do that and what do I do to correct it? Thanks for any help.

Hand rub 0000 steel wood over the shiny areas to easily fix! A walnut changing table is noble indeed.
