I'm finishing that stairsaw I mentioned a few days ago. I'm rubbing
2# shellac. There are two spots on the wood that just won't take the
finish. I'm also having trouble getting the arrises to take finish, but
I think that's just my technique.
I filled the Ash with rubbed pumice and 1# shellac: nice smooth
One of the patches is light wood, the other is dark . I tried rinsing
and wiping with (separately!) Ronsonol, acetone, and mineral spirits.
All the other surfaces are coming along fine.
Any ideas what's going on?
