    I have some timber with which I intend to build a kids climbing frame. as usual, the timber is stamped / stained / stencilled with the yard info. Obviously, this will not look great on the finished project.

    what is the best method to remove?

    I think it fades with time:rolleyes: but agree it can be annoying.

    I have successfully removed fountain pen ink stains from untreated wood using methylated spirits and a cotton rag. Not your exact problem but worth a try. Rotate clean bits of the rag on the ink as it comes off otherwise you may end up putting ink back onto the wood.
