I picked up a cherry board and had the store, McBeath, resaw it for me. Cut it to size to do some “toe kicks” as I continue to work on finishing the living area of our home (tile and laminated floor have gone down and look pretty nice if i may say so myself). I’ve had the opportunity to put my WoodWorking tools to use in installing and triming the job. Whereas I used some figured cherry board I had in the garage for years for some of the trim work and was met with approval, a figured walnut was not approved and this last cherry board turned blotchy when the stain was applied. My wife has done and does all the finishing and got the other cherry to match. This last resawn board is not cooperating.
I indicated to her that this may be a problem with the grain being not consistent in its “pores” and I guess the sap wood and other wood also having different properties. I also said I’ve heard of “sealing” products to counteract this potential problem.
My main question is, is there a way to remove the stain that has gone in and then apply the sealant? A coat of minwax stain has been applied. If so, does the sealant goes on all the board or those areas prone to sucking up the stain? I’m going to try to upload some pictures. Thanks in advance for reading and any feedback.
