  • almost ruined

    I almost ruined my wine bottle holders..
    It started off with the red oak stain that I was using did want to dry.
    then when I put on the clear coat it didn't want to dry eather plus it was pulling up the stain?? and that's after 2 day...

    I tried to help it out by putting then in the oven at a very low heat but all I got was tiny little blisters...luckily steel wool took care of the blisters but I need to get another clear coat on them so I came give them away tomorrow..

    any idea's on why my stain and clear are not dring?

    Possible moisture?

    It might be, that you had to much moisture in the wood, or to much moisture in the stain.

    Where did you store the wood before you tried to finish it.

    And, what was the temperature in the shop?

    Can you try staining a small area in the back of the piece, and then try spraying a small area in another section in the back.

    What stain and coating did you use?

      It could be the Stain?

      Did you by any chance happen to use a Minwax stain, or was it some other "oil" based stain?

        stain

        Trout,

        Sometimes it is low temperature in the drying area.

        Sometimes it is excess moisture or oil in the wood.

        Sometimes the stain is just old. If the solvents evaporate too much in the can the resulting paste will almost never dry properly, even if you add extra solvent.

        Sometimes it is just holiday gremlins.

          yeah, it's been getting down to the high 20's at night..that's cold for California..

          I was getting down to the bottom of the cans and since I've been using better wood I haven't been staining.
          I did get a fresh can of clear and it seams to be drying a little better but I think the under coats have are ready done their damage and will probably keep this coat tacky for a few days too...I just hope there dry enough to wrap up tomorrow morning..

          even though there still tacky, they sure look GOOD!

            I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

            Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

            He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

            We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
