Building a workbench with a 3" white oak butcher block style top. Would like to leave the top a natural color. Last night I glued on the finger jointed skirt which is a contrasting. dark stained 1 3/4" wide white oak. The problem is after getting the top all clamped up I realized it had creaped up above the rest of the top just enough that I now know it will have to sanded back down level with the rest of the top. Thi s of coarse will have to be restained. I am concerned about how I can restain a clean line between the two boards? I'm thinking that even with masking tape the oil stain will bleed under and on to the adjacent board? Any help on how to stain a clean llne and keep it just on the skirt board? Kind of like Charleton Heston as Moses parting the Red Sea!
