Blunder on oak table


I purchased a new unfinished oak table. I wanted a high gloss durable finish so I purchased an epoxy finsh. I cleaned the table as per the manufacturers instructions, mixed the epoxy and applied the epoxy with a brush according to directions on the epoxy can. When I returned to the view the results the entire finsh had small depressions in, as if small drops of liquid had landed on the table while it was still wet. I asked a nieghbor who does some wood work and he said it had "fish eyed". What causes this and how do I prevent it? Thank you.

'Fish eye' is caused by silicone contamination in the finish - usually from something left on the wood. Sinc ethe table was unfinished when you bought it, I have to ask - "What did you clean it with?"
