I have just taken a week vacation to refinish my front door, and have run into several issues. I have some questions and would greatly appreciate your advice so I can remove this from my honey do list.
How can I correct the below issues please?
Splintered wood corrected using wood filler with wood. sanded down, and now stain not consistent IMG 8366 before, IMG 8377 after
Darkness in wood that won't go away in upper left corner (IMG 8357)
I have applied 2 coats of Minwax stain and still have white discoloration in center between panels (8375)
My wife wants a darker color. Do I have to sand with 220 for adhesion before applying darker color since only 2nd coat of stain, and no Helmsman Spar Urethane applied yet?
Thank you so much for your help.
