I'm finishing my coffee table and have been using a Sam Maloof finish which is
Tung oil, Linseed oil and Varnish. I noticed some scratches after applying the
first coat and sanded it with 300 grit paper and applied the second coat. It
appears to be lighter on the places I sanded and wondered if I should sand it
down and start over. I did sand through the finish on those spots.
I really like the Sam Maloof finish by the way.
Which is not at all a bad way to try to blend the existing contrast. Some
0000 and some Maloof applied gently in a circular pattern around the
offending area (so as to blend), should help you get to an even-ness that
you can work up from.
