Topic tags/keywords: question

I just purchased some rough sawn walnut some of the bark is still on the edges. I’m wanting to make a couple of projects, but I want to leave the bark on some of the project. My question is how do I make it so the bark will stay attached to it..

give it a good dose of CA glue (thin).

I just looked at some of the boards. The bark seems good and tight. I’m wanting to make a couple of jewerly boxes, I want to leave the bark on the front of the bottom (base) of the boxes. Is there a coating or something that will help if from coming apart and keep it on the board.

rich isn’t steering you wrong.

flow some thin CA all through it. It will essentially plasticize the wood where it gets in.

If it was cut in the spring or summer it is more stable than winter cut.

Pull it off and then glue the whole thing back on.

I never dought Rich. I misunderstood what he was saying, I was tired. Some days that happens to me because of my seizure disorder.

Topamax , I’ve been told that if you want the bark to stay on , it should be cut in the Winter because all of the excess moisture from the growing , moving outer layers is gone and the bark is therefore tighter to the tree, naturally making it more stable. It’s like green wood versus kiln dried .They used to cut trees in the Spring if they wanted to remove the bark because with all of the high moisture content , the bark would pretty much pull right off of the wood once they made a split in it to get it started.

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

I probably got it backwards, I hate these senior moments ;-))
