    Woodworking

    We need a woodworking thread.

    Ok, who's ever impregnated wood? Yes, I realize the risk of asking that question here.
    I have some walnut and I want to make it into a reel seat and grip for a fly rod.

    You exacerbated the problem by mentioning grip and rod in the next sentence.

    I think you are taking the concept of tree-hugging too far.

    Thanks, Chris.
    I'm also thinking of polymerizing some bamboo poles for my next frame.




    I need a vacuum pump to make my wood hard. *hangs head*

    My husband used PolyEthylGlycol 10,000 to soak green wood bowls in to prevent cracking... worked really well - replacing moisture with PEG, but tended to clog up the grinders & sanders afterward.....
