I have some QS red oak 5/4 for a hall table top and when I planed them
to 4/4 + some stain marks apeared on a couple locations and I am
wondering if I can bleach or clean these marks. I have (3) 9"x8'
bookmatched boards so the marks appear on the boards in the same general
location on the boards. The makes are not solid, they are
discolorations that may not even show up when finished, but I would hate
to have to go the that point only to find out that they show up. If I
could just get them to fade a bit. If there is such a cleaner, do I need
to do the entire board so they will finish the same?
Any help would be great and thanks- -Mike
I recently had the same problem, black marks that run the width of the
board. I guess these come from strapping the lumber down during the kilning
Anyway, all I can suggest is what I did: Scrape, sand, scrape, sand. And
try not to create any divots as you scrape them out. Periodically put a
straight edge accross the problem area as you scrape.
