So I just had a contractor install a new bay window with a birch veneer seat board. Along comes the plasterer, and he drips plaster onto the unfinished wood. It's now stained and I'm in need of suggestions on how to remedy this so that I can continue on to finishing it.

My original goal was to just polyurethane it and leave it natural.

Any ideas on how to remove the stains?

sounds like you need to have the plasterer buy you new wood for the seat. that will make him be more careful in the future.

I was able to remove all the stains using a bleaching method.

I tried a couple of bleaching mixtures. One using 2 parts bleach to one part water. That mixture did not do as good as a job as the 2 part hydrogen peroxide and 1 part water.

The hydrogen peroxide mixture worked amazingly well and after soaking it a couple of times all stains were gone.

Thanks for all the feedback.
