So I sanded my project, wet it down and sanded down the fuzzys, applied my
stain and now I see some glue splotches. How can I get rid of them without
sanding down the entire piece or screwing up the finish?
I don't know since the stain is applied, but a 50% mixture of white vinegar
and water warmed up to hot, not scalding will dissolve carpenter's glue. It
may freckle the wood (according to specie) and the freckles will have to be
sanded out. Try it on a sample first. Apply the vinegar water with an acid
brush or q-tip.
actually you have not got to the finish as yet and having recognized the
problem at this stage it is easily corrected, the real answer if you want it
to look good with minimum problems...resand and restain...mjh
I recently had the same problem. After applying some Watco, a couple of
glue splotches showed up. I took a scraper to those areas and reapplied the
Watco. It was better but still noticeable so I tried again and it worked.
Afterwards I put on a couple of more coats of Watco to the entire surface
and it blended everything together.
