yup, I did condition. Makes me wonder if on that partulcar panel I missed cond. or blotched the conditioner application. Funny thing about it was the stain was ok -- it was the Tung - can't remember pure or canned. It was a later door of 5 or 6 and could've been either type. Maybe I can spot it now whereever it is hung and note the grain for some pattern and watch those going forward..



Sanding Sealers and grain fillers -- same thing as conditioner? will check..

Whats the canned Tung cut with? Maybe that adulterant allows better penetration.

Ask the builder does seem to say "sand 'er down" -- doesn't say anything about wet sanding 800 or 1200 , but still alot more than I was doing.

thanks.

Sanding Sealers and grain fillers are two distinctly different product and processes.

Rockler.com has blurbs about both.

As you are finding, wood finishing is not an easy process to successfully master, so take your time and learn the skill and the rewards will be evident.

Thanks Snoonyb. yes, the options are bewildering given the options of desire...
I got a lotta digesting and cogitating to do.
