  • Bleach

    i am working on a couple projects out of maple and i would like to make the maple lighter still what would happen if i used household bleach on the pieces

    I don't know what would happen but if I had that question, here is what I would do.

    Find some scraps, set one aside as control. Put one in bleach, one in vinegar, water and baking soda, dishwasher det., try everything and see what happens. You might just find the coolest new trick to a funky new grain enhancement. All you're out is some scraps and a day of waiting.

      There is an article on bleaching wood you might want to check out. There are several different bleach solutions that are described. Also, you need to plan on sanding after bleaching, as any water-based solution will raise the grain.

        Pegas Large Scrollsaw Table
        by cwmagee
        A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

        Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
        That is...

        The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

        Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

        Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...
