Johnny, i dont know if its a maadi thing, but i noticed "cracks" that were already fulla wood glue in my LHG when i was refinishing them, the glue was starting to kind of bubble up a little after i left it in stripper overnight. but all appearances of them went away when i let my parts dry in front of the dehumidifier. this tutorial has proved to be enormously informative and helpful, makes me glad to lurk such a wise web sight.
As far as bleaching agents go, Oxy-Clean is a good Oxygen bleach that is as kind to wood as it is to clothing. You can soak wood in a water solution of oxy-clean, or make a slurry/paste and paint it on the wood.
