I cut my thumb today (wee tiny slice, not to worry) and I didn't notice it was bleeding until I was handling the unfinished maple neck I was working on.

Luckily I didn't get any on the neck and got a band-aid on it, but it made think 'what if I had?'

Is there any coming back from that?

What do you do?
Get out the Redwood stain?
Bleed on it some more and say you *meant* to do that?
Clear coat it anyway and have a story to tell?

WWPD???
(what would Peegoo do)

Happens to me all the time. I wish people would wash their guitars before they bring them to the shop. Sometimes they're really yucky and I need to break out the disinfectant to avoid a GTD.

"I wish people would wash their guitars before they bring them to the shop."

Ditto. I clean out trash from my car before taking it into a mechanic, I brush my teeth before going to the dentist, I wash my hair before getting a hair cut, I clean my recycling... I don't want other people to deal with my filth.

Heavy duty build up of grime that is hard to get out, that's fine. I have tricks up my sleeve (including a buffer), and I see that as part of the service. But the really nasty stuff? Not okay buddy.

To the original point, I feel like I must've run into this problem before but have no memory of it. My guess is that it doesn't go too deep into the grain. Maple is so hard that you'd probably have to be bleeding a lot to really saturate the wood. Also, blood will oxidize and turn black, and it is very hard to know what you're looking at. If solvent/sanding doesn't work entirely, the spot will probably be negligible.

Yup. Stains and dyes don't even penetrate very far and blood is comparatively thick. It'd probably puddle up and dry rather than spread out if left alone.

The absolute worse filth I've been around is when I worked on customers cars or trucks/vans.

The dealers insist on placing paper mats and plastic covers on the seats and then had plastic with elastic deals to cover the steering wheels.

For me this was just barely basic stuff. What you find under seats or in consoles or glove boxes is horrid enough , yet when the screw heads are so filled with crap and need to be cleared and the console is stuck to the carpet and everything the driver touches is caked with what ever , tan becomes black then they hang those horrid pine sent X-mas tree's you really need an air tank and sealed body cover. Then to make things even worse they apply that crap armorall on everything.

"Blood on Bare Timber."

Sounds like a great

title for a logging safety film.
