What makes it do this, sap or is the wood dyed



First off, beautiful piece.

This could happen if you using a water based finish and a water based dye.

Is it possible that sanding dust from bloodwood got into the pores on the maple?

Maybe paint some epoxy thinned with DNA on the end grain, let it dry, sand it smooth, and put the finial on. The thinned epoxy should wick into the fibers, and seal them off water tight.

My problem is that the finial is CA glued into the recess of the lid.  So I can't remove it with out breaking it.  So the only option I have is to hand sand it back around the finial to the maple and finish again.  I'm using Deft Clear Gloss Spray and used Deft Sanding Sealer prior to that. I used blue tape to tape around the base of the finial and sprayed again.  Still bleeding.  Is there a finish I can wipe on just on the sanded area that will go with the Deft Gloss after hand sanding?
I have learned a very valuable session with this project.  I will apply finish to the individual pieces prior to gluing them on all contrasting colored wood.

Thanks for all the advise and assistance.

The Deft finish you're using does come in a liquid for brush on application.

This Topic was moved here from Turning Talk by Ed Weber.

I moved this here since there is quite a lot to address with when dealing with this situation
Wood selection, wood sealing, construction, and so on.

gorgeous piece, Miss Kathy! I don't work with many exotic woods, either, due to budget. But I have worked with blood wood some, & it does, on occasion, have a tendency to bleed.

I cut my own feathers for my dream catchers on the scroll saw. The thickness I'm working with is usually around 3/16" of an inch. Sometimes, if I don't shellac every feather before I put things together, It will bleed into the the other wood species. Especially maple, oak, & poplar.

I love your work! keep it up!! Thumbs Up
