    Unhappy I screwed up

    A week ago I put some polyurethane on an SKS stock. I guess I put it on too thick because when I hung it up the Poly must have ran down to the butt portion, and it is still tacky. My question is how do I solve this problem. Do I use some kind of chemical, or sand it or scrape it off. I know you guys know how, because I can't be the only one who must have done this. Joe

    Let it harden up some more the under belly of the drip will be tacky for a while.Then when cured use oooo steel wool lightly sand till drip is gone.A big mistake a lot of people do is overspray instead of 5 to 10 light spray coats then the finish will be geioreous !

    You didnt screw up, just made a little more work for yourself. Let it dry, sand it smooth
    spray again, sand again with emory cloth and then polish it.
    Orrrrr, sand it down, spray it again, then wrap a t-shirt around it and take it off,
    and you'll have a stock just like the oem ones.

    Stock turner is the best way to avoid runs.
    But you are now that you are past that stage, as posted above let it dry and lightly wet sand block it with 220grt until you have the run(s) out of it.
    Sand the whole thing to get and even finish.
    Let the wet sanding dry.
    Then spray LIGHT coats with sanding (320grt or steel wool) in between every 2 or 3 until you have the pores sealed or the desired finish you want.
    Do get worried if it takes you 5 or 6 coats and 2 or 3 weeks.

    Or slather on some Citri-strip/Aircraft stripper/Goof-off and let it sit for a few minutes and then scrape it off with and old credit card or even a utility knife blade.
    And then sand it down and start over.
