    My gut says that your bleaching will delay onset of any natural darkening of the d-fir, but AFAIK, there's no way to stop it from happening permanently. A UV-resistant finish will help a little, too....

    You can also use MC (armored) in lieu of conduit, if I'm not mistaken, but working with PVC conduit is really easy for small jobs like this.

    For a small number of pieces, I'd likely opt for the really sharp chisel to clean things up myself. Of course, that would mean sharpening my chisels. LOL
