I’ve build an oak bookshelf. Prior to staining it was sanded really smooth. It seems like the stain raises some of the grain and makes it rough. Where I really notice this is when I polyurethane it. After the first coat dries it’s got little bumps on it. I sand these out and put another coat on it but the little bumps never seem to completely go away. I suspected dust so I cover it with plastic after I’m done, but this doesn’t ever seem to completely help. Any ideas?
