Spot sanding and refinishing butcher block?

I just finished installing butcher block countertops. I came home this evening to a coffee pot that had leaked and I now have a dark stain. Can you spot sand and finish part of the butcher block? Id rather not redo the entire countertop as I just finished it about a week ago and got it installed yesterday. Its about an 8 area at the end of the countertop Id have to redo.

You didnt tell us anything about HOW you finished the countertops, so it's its really hard to answer your question. One would assume you could block sand the affected and refinish, but we dont know what you used as a finish.

I used Watco clear butcher block oil and finish. And then used Howards cutting board wood oil as a final coach. I did 3 coats of the Howards and 2 coats of the watco.

You will just have to sand and try to blend it as best as you can. Problem is where it blends in you will have an overlapping area where 3&2 coats meet 6&4 coats. You won't know until you try. And you may have to go by eye.

this is why a bees wax finish is probably superior.
