Frequently asked questions

What should I do if the stain absorption is uneven ?

The sanding may be the cause of your problem. An uneven sanding leads to the wood’s pores opening unevenly which means the stain penetrates more in some areas then others.

The solution is to regularly change your sandpaper and apply the same strength to the sander and well as following the wood grain. This process should be done one board at a time.
