I believe I got some bad advice. I'm re-finishing an oak front door. I
really wanted to see the wood, so I went against most recommendations
to just paint over it with latex. They guy at the paint store told me
to apply the stain (exterior stain) with a brush and let it dry. I
asked him do I wipe it off after a few minutes? He sain no, it's not a
wiping stain. So now there are several areas on the door where the
stain was either applied at slightly different rates (brush marks) or
where the wood absorbed it differently.
So how do I correct it? Should I try another coat? or I had the idea
to go over it with a rag soaked with mineral spirits. Or should I sand
again? If I sand what grit?
