Default Tannin & Bogwood

Is there anyway to speed up the process of removing the tannin from a piece of bogwood?
My piece has been soaking for 3 weeks in warm water and changed the water daily

Help! Lol

I don't have anything to boil it in - arrrrhhh

I've been using warm or boiling water in a bucket. How do you manage to boil a large piece?

You'd need a big pot....if it doesn't all fit, you could always boil one side, and then turn it over...
