Got the Box Elder Blues *PIC*

Andy DiPietro
>Last week I picked up two 22" diameter x 4 foot long pieces of Box Elder. Unfortunately the pieces have heavy blue stains in them. I turned a small hollow form and bleached it with wood bleach and Clorox. At best the colors look okay but the blue stains remained. Is there a good way to remove the blue stains or do I really have a couple pieces of low BTU Firewood. I saw a posting once about a two-part bleach, but I could not find a supplier. Suggestions please.
