Preventing resin bleed

Postby eggman08.2008 » Tue Mar 20, 2018 5:11 pm

Hi. I have recently purchased some thick wood pallets to make table and benches.

I think the wood is pine but not sure as I have no experience except in woodwork class about 15 years ago. Some of the pieces are white, some rose and some a bit of both. ( see pallets.jpg & mix.jpg attached )

The wood is knotty. I actually like the look but I imagine I need to do something to prevent resin oozing out under my paint and varnish. One piece already has a vein of resin leaking out (see resin.jpg attached)

I plan to stain the table and bench tops and then varnish. The legs I intent to paint white with gloss. (see stainvarnish.jpg & gloss.jpg attached)

I would like to use the table both indoors and outdoor.

Can anyone please answer the following questions:

1. What wood it is? I'm sure one of you master carpenters would know!
2. The varnish I have says suitable for outdoor use. Is there a reason it should not be used indoors? Fumes maybe???
3. How do I finish the wood to prevent the resin bubbling under my paint and varnish?
4. How do I deal with the resin vein that is already leaking?

I want to make something good quality that will stand the test of time so advice from the experts will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for reading this post and super dooper thanks to anyone who replies.

Welcome to the forum. The wood is pine, to stop resin bleeding either use knotting or if you ate going to paint it prime it with zinser bin. Finally you say you want to make something good quality that will stand the test of time - if so, and you want it made from pine, do yourself a favour and chuck the pallets on a fire and buy some southern yellow pine or Douglas fir instead.

Thanks for the reply. What do you mean by "knotting"? Is there a word missing?

Scrape off the resin thats seeping out and seal the knots with knotting.

Sand then stain/varnish.

Q2 - no reason why you can't use exterior varnish indoors.

Is there any other alternatives to knotting that are actually clear? Its supposed to be clear but its definitely knott!!! Its more like wood stain.
