Default Edge grain/ end grain transition

Hi everyone

Finishing isn't my strong suit so I could use some advice.

As you can see from the pic, the transition from the leg to the spreader on the desk results in some end grain showing. I gave it a quick alcohol wipe to check how I was doing on sanding. I don't like the darker end grain -- I knew it was a possibility but wasn't sure how prominent it would be.

So, should I put a wash of white glue and water on the area (50%/50%) and then re-sand? I'm planning on a wipe on varnish finish.

Thanks for the help
