Please help me fix my door staining problem
I am staining red oak veneer, flat panel doors. I use a pre-stain sealant of Zinsser SealCoat with denatured alcohol. I let it set for 10 minutes and then apply the stain (Sherwinn Williams BAC). The dark stain has been pretty difficult to work with but that's a different issue. Some of the sealant dripped around to the other side of the door and when I stained that side, I ended up with a stripe along the edge where no stain was absorbed. It looks terrible. How can I fix it?
I tried some CitrusStip on a test piece of oak and it sort of removed some of the stain but the grain stayed dark. I suspect that there are additional pitfalls with stripping veneers.
Does anyone have any advice for me?
thanks in advance,
