I have about a 3” thick piece of mesquite that was cut out of a tree. It is cut to be end grain and is about 18” around with bark still on.
I am wanting to turn it into a lazy Susan for a friend. What I cant decide is if it would look better keeping the bark on it or peeling it off. Also, what would be the best way to finish this. I initially was thinking tung and teak oil or a salad bowl finish. If I decide to keep the bark on what would be the best thing to do to make sure it gives it the best shot at staying on (assuming it will)?
Forgive my ignorance on this I have never dealt with finishing anything live edge
