Well that's the link of the day! Thanks!Another member Charles Neil posted a video on how to make tiger maple pop. Maybe between the 2 techniques you can come up with something. Edit: I tried to link that specific video, but it did not work. It is here (along with alot of other cool stuff) http://www.antiquesbuiltdaily.com/tips.htm .
The tiger maple video is under the "sanding/finishing" heading.
