Turning Archive 2004
I've posted here before but am still a turning wannabe. Fortunately, the steep slope of the learning curve is beginning to curve slightly in the right direction.
I've been playing around with some ancient doug fir barn beams, creating bowls and such. Though the wood is not the optimal turning material, to be able to say that the item turned is from an old barn beam is pretty cool. Especially when I can capture and retain some of the now ebonized nail holes.
After all that, here's my question. I'm running into a lot of small and not so small cracks. I'm not ready to give up on this stuff yet and am wondering what is the best glue (and brand) to bridge them and make the vessel sound. The largest of these is about 1/16".
Any advice from the experts is welcome.
