Are the whites lines in this lip fine sawdust in deep scratches? Poor sanding?

edit: resanded starting at 120…..try again? Didn’t seem to make much difference.

I think it its just porous wood; fine sawdust in the pores. Your finger should tell you if you can feel scratches, or maybe a magnifying glass. If all the lines are parallel with the grain, its pores.
Also, wipe it with a slightly damp cloth to remove the dust, then examine.

OK, thanks Mike. I’ve been using a tack rag between grits and this hasn’t happened before…..ya think a finish (WOP) would be OK to put on after the damp cloth thing dries?

Try blowing the dust out of the pores with compressed air.

I do think it will work just make sure it is actually dry (now that it’s winter, that’s about 5 minutes here.). That is also why I said a slightly damp cloth, it will pick up dust without leaving too much water.

Maybe the whiteness is dust form the ash/oak? part of the bowl making it more contrasty.

Oh, yea, one more thing. Don’t use the damp cloth after your last grit, it will raise the grain (microscopic fuzz) even with extra fine grits. Your tack cloth should be good.

OK, I did all of the suggestions given, thanks Aj2 and Mike. I think they all helped to an extent, and got the white traces mostly taken care of, I think the next coat of finish will have them taken care of. I was pretty worried there for a while. Whew…...Just as an aside, the contrasting wood is Satinwood, you didn’t have much of it to go on but it has a nice yellow cast to it.
