I am building a wine cabinet using birch veneer plywood. I raised the grain and resanded (enough, I thought). I used an aniline dye to change the color to a deep reddish brown, applied a coat of tung oil/urethane and then two coats of polyurethane. The problem that I have is that the grain is still fairly rough. I lightly (again, I thought)sanded a piece and promptly cut right through the dye. My question is this: Is there a way to achieve a smooth finish without sanding down to below the dye and starting this finish process all over again?
