  • 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
    let me know if anyone has tried this

    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.

        After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
        I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

        Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

        Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....

        Betty, I just tried a test, using a standard jpeg file. I clicked "upload attachments", then selected the photo I wanted to upload, then double clicked the photo, and it uploaded without a problem. Go figure!

        When I try to upload pictures, why is there an X next to upload attachments? I hate computers.
