I'm making a cherry shelf. I used a steel combination square to check alignment during glue-up. In doing so, I briefly set it on some wood I had moistened earlier in the process. Looks like that was all it took…I've got the neatest little stain that could have been stamped from the bottom of my square. It isn't in a noticeable spot so I've sanded and will live with what is left.

I'm guessing that like oak, the tannins in cherry cause the stain?
Any ideas for how to remove a stain like this?

Thanks, I'm looking forward to being part of the community.
