Re: Translucent white stain

Minwax makes a white pickling stain, we found it at Lowe's and Home Depot. We just finished using on our oak kitchen cabinets and it does let the grain show through. I would certainly try it on a scrap first.

Re: Has anyone ever tried making their own strings?

There was a discussion "Over-Wound Strings Breaking" on HPSCHD-L back in November of last year that got into making overwound strings.

You can find the archives here: https://list.uiowa.edu/scripts/wa.exe?A0=HPSCHD-L but I'm not sure if you have to subscribe to the list or not (it's free).
