My wife would like me make some rounds out of Black Locust for a project (see below.) She likes the look with the bark on, my question is will the bark be stable when it dries. The wood is green, if I treat it with Penetrol and/or shellac or varnish will the bark hang in there? The rounds will be hung from a CNC routed board like the first one I made for my wife, she used slate for that one. It will be kept indoors.
Here’s a few rounds some treated with oil, one has the bark sanded off.
Here is the last project using slate instead of the rounds.
I have a couple of weeks to get this done…so no big rush!!
