I have some shelves I'm finishing using Minwax Wood Finish and MinWax Semi-Gloss poly. On one side of one of the shelves, there are some small damage marks.
Long story short: Some masking tape got stuck to the shelf, and in the process of removing the tape, some of the stain got scratched off. (This happened after the poly had already cured).
So now I have two areas on this ~8'x2' shelf that are like scrapes that removed some stain. They are about a centimeter wide, and maybe 4-5" long. The wood itself isn't scratched.
The marks are too noticeable to ignore, but I am loathe to sand the whole thing to zero and start over. Especially given that the rest of the board looks great; I already have to do that to another board; and it feels like I started working on these shelves when VCR's were a daring new idea.
Do I have any touch up options?
