A friend have me a burl knit which had fallen off a tree. It’s still got most of its bark, but I can see the swirls and it’s going to look great when I make a section cut. To bisect it, it’ll require a 7 inch cut. You big for my benchtop bandsaw. I’m going to build a jig so I can pass out once over the table saw, flip it over for the second cut, and hand saw the remainder. My question (finally!) Is how to protect the bark which completely surrounds the knot. I thought Pentacryl would do the job, but that’s for green wood. Is there anything I can do for dried would
