I guess it's been more than a week since I last posted. I sanded the plywood down in the basement. It took me several days. I obviously couldn't get the darkest areas as light as I would have liked.
I went and bought the new red mahogany stain and tested it with pre-stain wood conditioner on scrap plywood. This is what the color was supposed to look like.
I'm actually ready to start staining again, but I can't because it will take too many days to finish and we're going to have a friend stay with us next weekend and we can't have the house stinking like stain and varnish. It's pretty horrible for several days.
So, instead, I'm planning to focus on cleaning up and prepping to start right after the visit.
