Wood Turning Green

Recommended Posts

The greenish hue on the surface is predominantly caused by moisture in contact with the surface.

The hue builds over time, the more contact you have.

No biggie though, as it's only on the surface and sandable and scrapes off.

A similar reaction can be found with Tasmanian oak, where the water or moisture will discolour the timber to varying degrees of black. Also fixable by applying oxalic acid to leach out the stains.

Cheers, Stu
