A colleague and I are preserving an historic log structure which requires some replacement logs be integrated into the structure. Our client feels that the contrast between the old members(weathered grey) and the replacements(hewn douglas fir showing both heart and sapwood) is to great.
We are thinking about oxidising or perhaps bleaching the new pieces in order to tone down their brightness somewhat rather than using pigments that may not provide a stable appearance over the long term.
Any suggestions? Thanks, DT
