    Hi all,

    I would be grateful for some advice about treating mold on tonewood.

    A friend of mine has recently given me a box of old tonewood (sitka, maple, rosewood) that, unfortunately, appears to have been stored in a damp shed for the last few years. There is no rot damage, but a lot of the blanks are suffering from mold.
    I am keen to salvage the wood, so would appreciate any advice on how to best get rid of it. I was thinking of planing it off, but any more efficient suggestions would be great - the mold seems to have made its way at least into the top mm.

    Thank you.

    Perhaps a few days out in sunshine followed by light sanding will work.
