>I have some beautifully spalted birch. I soaked the wood in thinned Deft sanding sealer to help firm up the wood.
There are some very soft and hard spot though out the wood so when I sand, the soft spots quickly become divots. These divots appear after about 15 seconds of hand sanding on the lathe even when I start with 220 grit.
Any suggestions on how I can prevent these divots or should I just live with it?
