    hey so i live in Australia and we have a farm where we have trees that grow these lovely looking dark wood that looks amazing. Its on dry land so a I let it waterlog for a few days and it absorbed all the moisture and sunk within a day, this was without boiling in just cold water. So I’m wondering if I can just use hydrogen peroxide to bleach it? I heard it’s a natural thing that kills organic matter or do I still need to boil the wood. Thanks for answering!

    boiling the wood is going to help leach impurites and tannins. Hydrogen peroxide isn't necessary because this is just used to kill micro organisms.
