Exclamation Burn marks

Hello everyone,
I'm working on making a napkin holder for my mom for Christmas, I have burn marks on the ogee, which I have lightly sanded but I don't want to sand too much and destroy the profile and where I cut with my table saw, this I can sand enough to remove the burns, the question is... Is there something I could put on the marks to remove them or will I just have to keep sanding, I am fairly new to the routing world, please help!
With my laser I can use orange spray and remove it but its easier to remove

Thanks in advance

Is there any chance you can run the piece past the ogee again for a fine skim cut?

Burn marks and not just skin deep the norm just paint it brown or black.

Took a little off with the bit, it helped, but its still there so I guess I'll be painting or a dark stain.
Thanks

john find a piece of dowel that fits your profile wrap sand paper around it and go to town.remember to go well past your burn to even out your sanding.good luck

John - I usually find that wetting the area to raise the grain makes the sanding more effective

wetting the area and using a dowel, are things I wouldn't of thought of, I guess I have some new ideas to try!
Thanks! Rob and David

John end grain can often be a problem, router cutters are not all the same, quality cutters are far more expensive that the ones that come in a kit and they do have to be sharp, kit cutters can be sharpened and that does help but the cost of getting them properly sharp may well be out weighed by just buying a new one that is a better brand, I never buy or use kit cutters unless they are a top brand, if the cutter is an OK brand then try running the cutter speed a bit slower as that also helps, if the cutter is sharp and the speed is OK then you should not get burns like you show so my opinion is that the cutter has gone off and needs to be sharpened, if you have to sand that profile enough to get rid of the burn then the profile will get damaged and my experience is that the burn like that cannot be fixed well enough to be polished normally and it would only br OK if you were going to paint it, small pieces of wood are cheap and xmas is still a long way away, try to get the cutter sorted out and then make a new base and your burn problem will go away.

Neville,
yeah, I bought a kit with 40 router bits, I'm positive its the bits that are crap and yeah the board I bought from Rockler for $3, so to save a lot of time my best option might be what you suggested unless I paint it, going to home improvement store later today and I guess I'll weigh the options.
I also learned to cut the end grain first to prevent tearout, this forum is very helpful!

The best advice that I can give about router cutters is to not buy cheap cutters, regardless of if they are part of a kit or not, I will bet that most of the cutters in that set of 40, that you will not ever use them all, just buy good quality cutters that come in single packets, get then sharpened when they should be sharpened as good quality cutters deserve to be treated kindly, over time you will get a set of cutters that you do use, and as they cost more, then you will treat them better, Don't ever forget that working with wood is fun, NGM
