Someone decided to put my new wet stone on a varnished table... Stone expert needed!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello, My first post here, I hope someone can provide me with some guidance.
For Christmas I received a Bester Ceramic stone (2000 grit). After leaving the stone to dry out before putting it away, someone in my family decided to move the rack I had the stone drying out on...and placed It on our wooden kitchen table. The moisture in the stone obviously destroyed a part of the tables finish...but that's not the worse part....the stone absorbed the varnish.... Is the stone now wrecked? how can I get it out without damaging the stone? any help would be nice... I need to get my butcher knife sharp so I can - never mind... lol  crying.gif

Just flatten it under running water... you might have to take a bit more off than usual but it will clean up.

if the varnish is actually affecting your stone's performance, use your flattener and remove the part that got messed up.

 

if not, then why worry? if it works, it works.

Was trying to get it out without flattening a new stone (5 uses lol), seems like a bit of a waste. But the stone does have a slightly different feel to it when I use the other side in places. *sigh* time to go flatten my new stone :( Hopefully not too much will need to come off.
Thanks!

try to do a few swipes in between flattenings to see how much you can save before you flatten it all the way.

 

=D

You should also always flatten a 'new' stone and chamfer all the edges before your first use.

 

Saves nasty surprises and bad results due to the manufacturing process.
