Re: Over Sanding

I have a small spot of oversanding darkness too, right at a scarf joint. I just say it's a character trait of the wood, you see, during the great south african pygmy squash migration that happens once every 102 years, a particular type of indigenous beetle lay eggs in the gaboon tree that this wood is taken from, resulting in the dark splotches left over from the larvae metamorphasis. It's actually a quite desirable trait as it strengthens the wood. Just make up an interesting story about it, and carry on. Want to hear about my last fishing trip?
