In Response To: White film finish (Luan)

Did you use a water base stain, that could explain the white spots. It takes a special group of chemicles to darken a finish. First, understand that stain is under the finish in most cases, you must refinish a piece if you wand to chance the stain color. If you can clean off the stain you put over the existing finish using paint thinner, the finish may be salvagable. Once you feel that the second stain is back off try using a blush remover, from the wood workers store, or good paint store, to remove the white spots. Then while you're at it see if they have a lacquer toner that will darken the finish. Go over this with a new coat of clear lacquer, buff with 0000 steel wool and after a day ar so wax it.
