  • Tips-Cypress Knee Question

    For Sandy re removing cypress knee bark. Boil knees in water and vinegar two hours. Bark strips off easily. Dry knees in microwave at 30 second on high, rest and cool, repeat sequence. Carving off bark damages the natural contours of the wood.

    knees then the bark would peel off real smooth.Hope this will help

      I am sure you know how important and relevant that comment is Rolf! I have seen a number of scroll sawn projects over the years at garage sales, thrift stores, etc. I know whoever made them put in a lot of...

      Thanks Betty for asking. Staples came out today. There are some internal stiches that will dissolve over time. Jane is still doing PT twice a week. The only normal activity, whatever she can tolerate, but she is not allowed to swim due to the risk of infection. She will still have to keep icing...
