I don’t want to sand all of this more than I have to, how much of any of the previous stain will be covered up by the new stain? Interlux Chris Craft stain and Epifanes … See the dark spots where the previous stain seeped in farther?

    This is my first year at sanding and staining using Interlux filler/stain. My wood was dry, sun damaged and almost gone. I sanded with 80 grit. Dark areas that were wood grain were left and stained.

    Should strip with heat gun and wood scraper,wood bleach it,then lightly sand,then 2 coats of west system 105 and 207 hardener.,sand 220,then stain of choice. Hope it helps.

    Sanding mahogany ply is best done at a minimum,it doesn’t take too much with 80 grit to go through the veneer.Maybe try 120 ,stain it,let it dry and go to sealer and then varnish.

    Scrape with direction fibers with a very sharp ships scraper, do not think you even need a heat gun when it looks like that. Hand sand only with 120 grit, use the CC Interlux stain mixed with 1/3 Raw Linseed oil and 1/3 Turpentine. Wipe dry after after 30 minutes with cotton rag. Wait 1 week before varnish with Epiphanes. You will not be able to spot those markings.

    Rock on!
    You’ll be surprised how it blends with minimal work.
    Lots of folks want to stick to the original muddy looking paste wood filler that Chris Craft used in their cabin interiors and mahogany trim.
    I stripped my Roamer to bare wood and used 3 coats of Sikkens Cetol light.
    The results are rewarding to appreciate the grain of the wood.
