  • Looking For---

    I am looking for a product called PEG. It is used to preserve fresh cut wood to prevent cracking. IE: slab from a tree. The last time I saw it was in a woodworking mag. about 20 years ago.

            First off how thick is the board you cut?
            When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
            that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
            for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

            I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

            Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

            I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
