Topic tags/keywords: green wood finish tiger maple

In the course of assembling some bark-on halfrounds of w. washington trees for a fourth grade unit at the elementary school where I volunteer, I ran across an opportunity. Along with cherry, plain maple, douglas fir, coastal fir and red cedar, I have a piece of what I think is tiger maple. I would like to show off the figure in the cut green wood but am unsure just how. It would give the kids a glimpse of figured wood that woodworkers crave. The slabs and cut sides are about six inches. Any suggestions?

If they’re small enough, throw ‘em in the oven at a low temperature for a couple hours to dry. Then sand ‘em smooth and rub on a little oil of any kind to emphasize the grain.
