    Hi all

    I have a rather lovely maple stock I am re shaping and I have found that every time I try to protect it regardless of product , the stock goes YELLOW :eek:

    Can anyone recommend a product that doesn't alter the ' white ' quality of this gorgeous wood , wax , oil , acrylic varnish all sink into the grain and discolour it sadly .

    many thanks

    Dave

    James said that Paul said it was a one shot attempt, because the Tiger Maple is prone to splitting... and that if he got 1/2 way and it did then James would need to stump up for another bit of wood...and the time...

    It didn't split :D

    Ever tried laminated?

    I recall a chap who once soaked a laminate stock in so much oil ( or whatever he used ) that it started to look like a non EU banana :D
