51 Toxophilite 9 months ago I agree regarding the natural finishI've tried: -More acetone -wood stripper - diluted conventional bleach - more light sanding (320 then 600) - oxalic acide( deck cleaner/wood bleach)This was pretty frustrating because I researched this online a fair bit and many people seemed to champion the use of acetone and nobody warned about the potential problems (which would've been nice) If I had read a warning or had it pointed out to me prior I would've definitely looked into different methods I don't have facilities to really sand lacquer off in my apartment. But a stripper might've worked better, etc. I might try a final try at acetone butI don't think it won't help. There's also some dark brown staining on the edges of the sides which I think is from the original binding, It wouldn't look terrible in natural. but it definitely be a 'dirty blonde'!
