    Transparent Wood

    Thanks for sharing this interesting experiment! I tried it out - only the first two steps now. without the resin. After NaOH my wood looks a bit transparent but only when wet. 3% H2O2 bleaches it out but it is not transparent. I added it first to 30% H2O2 but hte wood completely decomposed. 3% is better I guess.My question is: is the wood becoming transparent only when adding the resin? I would expect id to be a bit transparent also before adding that. I used balsa wood :-)
