tree sap on deck
I just painted the first coat of stain on my deck and noticed that in one spot, tree sap has risen from the wood. What is the best way to remove the sap before applying the second coat? How long do I have to wait after removal? Thanks.

sometimes they will bleed out for a while. not sure what to seal with probably need to ask the folks you got your finish from what to use under it

Best solution:
Deck board removal and replacement

Those "bleeders" can cause havoc for years
...or never show up again
Any "fix" at this point "might work, might not"
