Green Wood stabilizer
« on: March 25, 2016, 03:37:16 AM »
I was wondering if anyone has used this product before?

http://www.preservation-solutions.com/product/pentacryl/

I've been tinkering a bit with wood slice or biscuit projects but have noticed that I have a limited window to work on the slices. What I usually do is cut about 50 or so different sized ones and work with them when I have the time. Leaving them when I can't get time to make new things can get them to cracking. I have tried putting them in a plastic bag which does help in extending the time for me but I would really like something that would give me some more time other than cutting fewer slices at a time. Any thoughts?

Those trees that have been sitting on the bottom of the Suwannee seem in pretty good shape "o) Try soaking them in a bucket of water, like I do with the saw palmetto stocks.

Didn't think about that. Both are wood so in theory it should work perfectly :)
