How to remove stain

last month

I inherited a clock from my grandmother that I would like to refinish. It's a wood plaque with a bunch of nails hammered into it to create a floral design. I love it except for the very orange wood. I'm hoping to change the color of the wood, ideally to a driftwood color. Obviously I can't remove all the nails so I have to find a way to do this without sanding. I don't want to paint it. Is there some chemical I could use that is fluid enough to get around all the nails? I've read maybe bleach or vinegar? I can remove the entire clock mechanism so there would only be the wood with nails in it. Any brilliant ideas would be appreciated.
