Medical LASER light for restoration of wooden instruments

Recommended Posts

The following scholarly article may shed light (pun intended) on the concept of using low-temperature (cosmetic) medical lasers to remove adhesive residue and pigments from wood when repairing and restoring musical instruments made of solid wood.

This may augment the article I recently posted about removing/dissolving epoxy with lasers. I did not write the article. I post this as a courtesy for informational puposes only. I assume zero responsibility if you apply the information.
