surfintiki - I will have to update this topic next year.
Both surftiki and thin man will spend some time under the damp
coast air.

tikifreak - #225 looks great on your oak! Mine wood is definitely more
absorbent.

G - I was pretty sure those beauty's had some #225
My alder is sucking in the stain big time especially
on the horizontal cuts its dark dark. Im thinking the oil
will bring it to life.

I might go back and sand some areas im not pleased with.

Aloha,

I've got the same problem on a few carvings, I think it is a problem of sanding but I'm really not sure, so I'll follow the progress of it very carefully.

And by the way, don't forget to post progress pix

Benjamin.

Seeks,

"Im thinking Watco rejuvenating oil exterior?"

I don't think the one I use says exterior. It comes in a small metal can/bottle similar to those that have thinner or spirits in them. I'll look at the label when I get home tonight. I initially used it because I wanted something light, that would penetrate deeply and allow me to reapply frequently to keep up the wood.

If they sell an exterior grade, I would be interested in knowing what else they have in there? Maybe a UV inhibitor?

G - I was thinking of trying the Watco rejuvenating oil exterior thats
what i was trying to say. Its not at my local HomeDepot but
is online. Yes, it has the UV stuff and other things?

Im in the middle of sanding. I really hosed Thin Man up.
Mostlikly inexperience, You think? probably to cold for the
stain to dry correctly and the stain was black in most areas with very little wood
grain showing. I put the oil on top of wet stain i think (bad move)
Ton of work removing stain and oil, looks like im in the same boat as
tikifreak sanding off stain.

Seeks,

In good conditions (warm and dry) I let each coat of stain dry for several days. I make sure there is no excess stain that will get sticky. I generally do three coats of the stain, or until I am happy with the color. Then, I wait at least a week or more before I apply the stain - sometimes a month. If it is cold and damp where you are, drying times will be a lot longer. Sorry to hear you've got a mess on your hands. That sux.

You can call me if you wanna discuss. I'll send my number in a PM.

-G

Keep going Seeks, it looks like you are doing a fine job. Hopefully he will be even better for having the botched stain job. I'm looking forward to seeing him all fixed up.

I thinks you needs longer drying times.....

Beautiful work so far...Did the same thing on a recent tiki by trying to
"hurry up" the finishing process...had to re-sand the whole damn thing.
It's gonna look great.

You have more patience than I do. I would have improvised something other than resanding. Man, I hate sanding!! Looks good and the next time - take your time.
