I have several pieces of buckeye burl that I’m itching to turn but I’m worried about how soft the wood is. I have talked to a few member who had great incite but I would like to get some more input before i do anything.
I am primarily interested in stabilizing the wood and so far people have recommended CPES clear sealer, CA, and Mylands… and they all say to apply the sealer post rough turning.
Has anyone had good results with an alternative method and or sealer product?
If the universal consensus is to apply the sealer post rough turning what is the best way to mount the blanks to avoid tear out?
