I have a couple of projects I made out in California. There is a toolbox made out of Jatoba that was finished with a wipe on poly in December, some small boxes and items made out of Mahogany that were finished with Antique Oil in December and the others are some nightstands and a coffee table made out of Walnut that were finished with Tung Oil in late April. I’ve been checking in on these almost daily for the last month because I knew the humidity here in Indiana was going to cause quite a bit of movement in the wood. Sure enough, as the humidity has really started to ramp up over the last two weeks, I’ve seen the wood swell up by about the thickness of a business card. Like I said, that was expected and is not the problem.
The issue I’m having is that as I run my hand over any of the glue lines, it almost feels like there is a slight bur running the length of the glue line. The bur seems to be consistent on every glue line for all three woods and in panels and glue ups of various thicknesses. The only thing they all have in common is the glue which was Tight Bond II. Just to clarify, all but two of these glue ups were run through a drum sander then hand sanded before finishing and waxing so I know they were spot on.
I was just curious as to whether anyone knows what is going on or has experienced this before.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
