Cutting some smaller gifts out of proof grade medium Maple. There is initially a considerable amount of burnt stink that will ‘offend’ the recipient (I have sensitive allergies so it’s understandable). I’m looking for techniques on cleaning the burnt smell out of nooks and crannies without saturating or swelling the material.
Would investing in a tumbler work or is this too aggressive? If ok, how long and what medium for stuff like Maple? Will it overly round the product? Cramb into the nooks etc?
