I'm refinishing a parlor table. Dark stained ash was sanded lightly and restained. Topcoated with a stain/tung mix and then wetsanded with 600 grit using same mix. Nice and smooth, good color. Now for the final finish, I used shellac (premixed clear out of the can) and it almost immediately started to crinkle and looks like an orange peel..a really wrinkly orange peel. What did I do wrong? Think I can sand lightly and recoat with shellac? Do I have a serious incompatability of finishes here? Help.
Thanks, Patrick Fischer Olalla, WA
