    It should be OK to sand all the old finish off and re-apply. If you sand carefully you should not have to re-stain. Got some questions. Are you sure the heat ruined the finish and it was not a bad or old can of finish? Cans of finish should be tossed out after being open a year. When you said tung oil did you mean pure tung oil or what is sometimes sold as "tung oil finish". If pure tung oil you need to cut it some with mineral spirits. Also make sure you only apply thin coats of your finish. Just wet the surface.

        Tim, cold can be worse then hot when it comes to finish. Keep the finish and the work piece at least 60 degrees until the finish is cured (24 hours).

          Don't forget humidity. I've had bad results from applying a finish on a rainy day...

              Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

              Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

              Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
              HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
