Default Finishing brown mallee

Definitely an adhesion issue. One of the following.

Contamination (clean the blank with da between sanding grits and before finishing, allow to dry fully before using CA)

Bad CA (replace it)

Wood not fully dry or reached equilibrium for your climate before you started (weigh the blank when you get it, check it periodically)

Sanding too fine before finishing (polished wood has no tooth to hold the finish)

Good luck with the next one.
