Teak Prep--Mysteriously Darkening Wood
So, I'm on day 101 (held hostage) of this fricking varnishing process. Orbital sanding, hand sanding, you name it.
On this perfectionistic kick, I used Ajax (per Don Chase) to bleach one piece of wood lighter...slathered it on, damp, scrubbed, rinsed after :30. Next thing you know, I have dark spots that won't even sand off!
What the hell?!
Anybody have any luck with Ajax, or should I just use Oxyacyic acid.
I swear, this boat is two steps back, for every .5 forward..!
Also: I'm pouring the varnish into an empty quart can, clean with a lid, so I can strain it and add thinner. Can this sub pot be used for successive days, or is the "paint can du jour" only good for the day?
presume I seal it.
