Just boil the wood along with adding some salt to remove any nasty things, Sazzy.:)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Ditto Blue.

The salt will also raise the temperature of the boiling water.
