Was hoping someone could suggest a fix for this? I have built a mission style headboard for a customer and am in the finishing process. The stain is pushing out of the pours in little droplets.
I have stained furniture with red oak before and have not had this much problem. Here is what I have done so far.
- Environmentals: I am finishing early in the morning (7:00 am) when the temprature is between 85 & 90 degrees but the humidity is around 70-80%. The temps have been over 100 for the past few weeks and I need to deliver this ASAP so I can not wait for October for the Dallas weather to change.
I have applied:
I suspect the temprature and humidty may be the issue. Do I need a blush retarder in the stain?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
