I laid some fiddleback veneer over an old stereo receiver case. There was a chipped area in the veneer near a edge that I had cut out and glued in a replacement piece, and filled in any micro voids with “stainable” wood filler.
But I apparently did not sand off enough of the residual glue or wood filler because now I have an ugly blotch in that area after staining.
Whats the best way to fix this?
I’m hoping I don’t have to rip off the veneer.

Can’t help you with this one unless the veneer is thick enough to sand through the glue residue but I can tell you how to not have it happen again.
Use hide glue, either hot or liquid. If you had, the answer here would be simply to give the area a light scrub with cool water.

With some Prismacolor pencils and a little patience, you can recreate that grain pattern, topcoat it and you’re done.

Lesson learned.. Thanks to all.
One more question..
What is the best way to sand (prep finish) for staining figured veneer, as far as sanding direction.
I know usually with the grain.

Have your say...
