Stock fiiler

Attempting to seal an unfinished sporter stock thats a few years old using Birchwood Caseys sealer and several spots refuse to completely seal after 2 applications. What's wrong?

quite possibly there's some spots of petroleum based gun on it, which it has absorbed over the years. might try a dab of alcohol on a small part of the problem area, preferably some place out of sight. Your local library can order smithing books from interlibrary loan. Brownell's gunsmithing kinks might help you. There's several gunsmithing forums on the net, altho one of them charges a bit of money for access to the info.
