Hi all, I’m in the middle of making an oak table for a customer. Last night I applied the first coat of varnish to some of the components. All was good. But, this morning I went to the shop to check how things looked and found several areas with what looked like mildew marks under the newly applied varnish. Very disappointing!
A few questions please.
Firstly, could this be because the moisture content was too high in the oak? My workshop is pretty damp, especially at this time of year, and I’ve had the oak stored for a few months. I did test for moisture, and it didn’t seem that high.
Any advice greatly appreciated,
