Turning Archive 2007
>So I'm sawing up some wet Pimento wood, and the heartwood is this beautiful cream color with dark streaks, but after a day or so it turns an ugly dark green. It must be from contact with air. When I cut it again, I can see that the green penetrates about 1/32" on the face and edges and maybe 3/16" on end grain. Is this at all common in other species?
Anything I can do to prevent this or at least delay it?
My hope is that after the wood is dry, I can surface it and it will still be cream color under the puke green color.
I'm experimenting with alcohol drying and boiling on some small samples.
Thanks in advance..
