I was talking to a work associate, who also does woodworking, and I brought up how I am planning on fuming the face frames, doors, and drawer fronts for my kitchen cabinet project. He told me how someone he knew found fingerprints in the finish of his fuming after the process.
This threw me for loop. I could see how enough of an oil coating from the finger could make a barrier between the wood and the fumes but I have never had this issue. Granted, all of my fuming has been small until now. The only other possibility I could come up with is that he had a small amount of glue on his fingers and that dried on the surface. He ended up having to where cotton gloves and sanding to a fine grit paper before fuming….
Has anyone had anything similar happen?
I just haven’t read anyone having this issue.
