- my first thought was to hit it with some 400 and give a light sanding to take the finish back to fairly smooth. Then re-apply a new finish.

- one time I was doing a pc of curly maple with spar and the finish <for whatever reason> went to a crinkly finish when it dried <moisture, humidity, who knows>. I hit it with some 400 to knock it back to smooth and re-sprayed. Came out fine.

I wondered about whether isopropyl would work, and figured somebody would weigh in. Thanks!

Cherryville Chuck Methylene chloride goes through some types of rubber gloves. I’m not sure which if any are good with it. Plus the fumes are carcinogenic. If a urethane or varnish was used and there was some moisture in the wood the hot sun might have bubbled it.
