I need help fixing a stain job gone wrong.
I built a console table out of White Ash. My SO convinced me that it should be stained a mahogany color to match our living room furniture. After several stain tests on scraps, it seemed that the best color was obtained by using an industrial stain made by Chemcraft. The store was selling it in bulk and told me it was an oil stain. However, it dried so fast that I suspect it to be an alcohol based stain.
The top of the table came out very nicely, probably because I did a superb job sanding it in the first place. On the other hand, the legs and apron do not show a uniform color. I only went through 80, 120 and 200 grits on the legs, whereas I went through 80, 100, 120, 150, and 220 for the tabletop. Now, how do I fix this. My inclination is to sand through the stain, and use the same sanding sequence for the legs and apron as I did for the top.
As always, your insignt is much appreciated.
