Guys, I’ve shown you in the past what Clorox does to Wenge. Today I stumbled on to another wood that benefits from a 2 hour soak in straight Clorox. Take a look. I’m sure it has some applications. I haven’t put a finish on this but it is only gonna make it better.
This wood is Lacewood…..look what it does. The dark side is how it comes from a lumber dealer. This piece was from Woodcraft. The light side is after an emersion in bleach for 2 hours, washed with soapy water, dried and a very light sanding. Watch how it becomes more reflected and has more contrast. Let me know what you think. I am going to do a knife handle from this piece. If it turns out nice I’ll post a pic.
-- I am going to go stand outside so if anyone asks about me, tell them I'M OUTSTANDING!
