  • 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.

    Re: Tips-Cypress Knee Question

    I just recieved my new issue of Wood Carveing Illustrated Mag.and saw in
    theTips section where Sandy wanted to know how to get the bark off of cypress
    knees.I was raised down in the south part of Louisiana and we boiled the
    knees then the bark would peel off real smooth.Hope this will help
