This is a mahogany veneer (I was told it's 1/32"). It has 2 coats of an oil based stain and 1 coat of a clear water based polyurethane. The stain was given a week to dry. The polyurethane was brushed on, using a thin coat.



Does anyone have an idea of what happened and what I might be able to do (short of painting over it all) to try to get rid of the white crystals that seem to have formed?

I also have more of this material stained but no polyurethane has been applied. Is there something that can be done to prevent this from happening on the rest of the material?

I was speculating that there was some kind of interaction between the veneer glue and the polyurethane. Is this even a possibility?

Thanks!

Looks like at one time the water borne poly was frozen. After that happens crystallization can occur.
