Sorry no help. I’m curious as well. I might try some very selective scraping.

In IT we’d call it a feature, but I don’t think that would work here.
If you do find an answer, would you be able to post it so others would be able to fix it in the future?

Did you trying wiping it with a wet rag? It looks like a lot of the dye is just sitting on the surface. It might wash off. The preconditioner might have prevented too much penetration, if you are (very) lucky. At least removing any surface dye that will dissolve will be a start on any more elaborate fix.

- CharlesNeil


This was wiped on. Wiped on the bottom of the lid first. Had let it dry while stained rest of project. When I flipped it over to stain the top of the lid, found the drip. Had hoped wiping the dye stain on the top would feather it out, but unfortunately not.
I appreciate your help.

I’d run it through the shaper again and take a light cut.

if it’s dye, why not just get some contour sanders and take it off & redo? Probably looking too simplistically at this, but elbow grease would be my shot at it? (but that opinion and a buck fifty will get you a cup of coffee)

Good luck.

Based on some of the feedback so far, I am considering spraying a seal coat on the whole top, I typically use lacquer. Then run the end with the drip through the router just shaving off the finish to raw wood. Then repeat the original sanding, CN’s pre-color conditioner, dye stain just to the end of the top.
Is that a workable option or should I be considering something else?
