First timer here (to forum and woodworking). I have two, 2" thick tree slices ("cookies") that have a diameter of around 20". I'm trying to turn them into end tables as a gift for my girlfriend. My plan is to dry them, take the
Will coating the fresh cut slices in polyurethane keep them from drying and cracking over time? They were cut a few days ago. I see that Pentacryl might work for this, but others I've asked are saying that polyurethane will work fine and keep slices from cracking?
For an end/side table, is epoxy or poly better as a finish? Does it matter?
Is there a good way to remove the bark from, and seal, the edges of the slices?
Thank you for your help!
