I’m trying to make some buttons our of a piece of manzanita branch that I cut from the tree about a week ago. They are a Christmas present for my sister who is into knitting.
I’m a little worried about the green wood eventually drying out, and checking. Is this a well founded fear? If so, then what can I do to prevent it?
Here are some pictures of my progress so far. The sanding has been pretty slow going. I plan on making more buttons later this week.
