Turning A Live Edge Bowl

1 min read

Have you ever wondered how to preserve the bark on live-edge stock? Normally, bark dries and shrinks faster than the wood to which it’s attached. This stresses the bond between the two and the bark sloughs off. But as this video begins, Nick has been soaking a slice of a walnut log in polyethylene glycol — PEG — for four months. The PEG has stabilized both the wood and the bark; neither has shrunk; so the bond between them remains strong. He turns a bowl the same diameter as the log, leaving a ring of bark all around the circumference. Not only does the bark remain attached, it is hard enough to be turned just like the wood.
