Update – In a nutshell things went from bad to worse, so I spent the day sanding back to bare wood, and starting fresh with the stain. I’m waiting for it to try so I can proceed with the poly, and skip the shellac.

What happened you ask? When I went out to the shop around 9 this morning, I found a rag on one of the table halves…picked it up and it revealed a section of dissolved shellac bare wood underneath I can’t for the life of me think of a reason i would have left that rag there….I know better! Truth be told, I had a minor medical procedure done under sedation yesterday, and was warned not to drive for 24 hours. I didn’t drive, but worked in the shop, and somewhere along the way left a rag damp with DNA on the table….tough start to the day for sure, but all is well now. No one to blame but me! Sometimes this hobby is a love/hate thing!

Thanks for all the tips, but ya can’t fix stupid!
