I have a piece of wood with a channel cut in it which is about 3/16" deep
and 1/16" wide. The problem is that wet-sanding munge (whitish-gray) has
collected on the insides of this channel and I'm having trouble getting it
There are 4-6 coats of (pure) tung oil/turp and 4-5 coats of wipe-on poly
on the surface with much wet-sanding in between coats. I used tung
oil/turp to wet-sand and MS (IIRC) after I started applying wipe-on poly.
The channel is about wide enough for a small toothpick to fit inside and
when I wrap the tip with a small amount of paper, and douse the paper with
mineral spirits, then 'scrub' this channel, the munge 'disappears' but
when the MS dries it reappears. I think after many scrubbings I have
gotten munge out but not nearly as much as all this effort should have
I tried running a razor inside the channel but it's risky (easy to slip
out and scar the surface or nick the channel) plus I can't get it to do a
very good job. If the MS makes the munge 'disappear' you'd think it was
on the surface of the channel and therefore not hard to remove wouldn't
you? Anyone know how I can get this crud out?
