    Fire-Rated No-Formaldehyde Substrates Can Discolor Exotic Veneers

    The increased use of no-added-urea-formaldehyde (NAUF) wood products is great, but can occasionally cause unsightly “bleaching” of gorgeous veneers. What to do?

    Soooo…I’m thinking about having a costume party for Halloween. After I spent all that time making my daughter’s peacock costume, it seemed like a waste to have her wear it only once. Plus, it seems I’ve been bitten by the Halloween bug! Of course, I’d like to keep the festivities as green as possible, so I plan to DIY (yes, I used it as a verb) as much of it as possible. Here are some of the ideas I’m considering:
