I have something happening that I’ve never seen before, On one of my red cedar boxes (bandsaw box Santa Sleigh) I had left the inside of all drawers unfinished for the cedar aroma and had a lacquer finish on the exterior walls and everywhere else, only the inside of the drawers were left unfinished, the box had been left on the shelf for over a year, today I took it down and was inspecting and found tiny clusters of what looked like salt crystals formed on the exterior of the drawer walls on top of the lacquer finish, when I took #600 sand paper to it they all just powered to a white substance.
I’m wondering if it could be a chemical reaction from the oil in the red cedar and the dried cured lacquer? baffled.
Was hoping someone might be able to bring light to this phenomenon?
