The best way to remove DO/Poly is re remount it and sand it off. (I'll bet this is not what you where looking for)

John, I'm not sure what you are really trying to do.  You can wax over DO on a Beall system.

I've been trying to achieve translucency on the NFP. I did the soak, sand routine for a number of times and got to the translucency point. Unfortunately I did not wipe off the access DO mix. So it built up. I let it dry for a while and tried the buffing , it just did not polish up as  I expected. I wanted the wax finish look , not the thick poly look.

I'm surprised it is not gummy

Sanding still sounds like the way to go if the DO is dry.
It might be quicker just to start over with a new piece of wood and wipe off the excess after each dip.

Live and learn

If it is the shine you really want to get rid of, let it dry and put a coat of satin poly on it. Has almost the same low "glow" as a well buffed and waxed piece of wood...Bill..

Ron.

After weighing the time, materials, and work involved. I've decided to take your advice. Live and learn. I can go with the before and after theory. I have more NFP blanks to work on. Thanks for the enlightenment!!  Aloha, John

I know it's hard to do sometimes, but hey, wood grows on trees... right?

Yes, wood grows on trees.  Sometimes, however, those trees are few and far between.   Cry
