I had been unable to continue oiling the door of the stand until this week; our temps have been so low that my kerosene heater cannot get the garage to proper temperature. Only recently has the temperature increased beyond freezing.
Overnight the roommate’s pet Bengal (housecat...not a Tiger) decided to pee on the door of my stand. The door was laying face up on the workbench. With only a single coat of Tung oil that was already sanded in preparation for the next coat, the finish simply could not hold up to 20+ hours of exposure. The urine stained the wood (through), destroyed the finish, reacted with and turned the wood glue into a white chalky substance, and cause the wood to swell and warp.
The front door is ruined and not salvageable. I will have to build a new door.
