Today the intern of my shop showed me the ribs of his newest viola. They had a nice yellowish brown color and he told me that he made it with soaking them in a Borax solution for 24 hours. He told me that he read somewhere that this treatment stabilizes the wood and makes it fire proof. I had heard about this for making wood fire proof but can it stabilize the wood? Has anyone here experience with such a treatment and what were the results?
