  1. @mat60I had wiped it down with mineral spirits because I was going to apply the finish, and did it outside because my shop doesn't have great ventilation. Probably not the best call on my part leaving it outside hahaha
  2. I am working with hickory, and had this piece of wood sitting outside in the sun for about an hour. The temperature was about 95 degrees F, and the board started to crack (I'm guessing from wood movement from the temperature change). I immediately took it into a cooler area but have seen no improvement in the past few hours. There was a small, visible split in the wood before this incident, so I filled it with epoxy and it fully cured since then, but it still cracked when put out in the sun. I was wondering if there was anything I can do to both fix and prevent this from happening in the futur
