  • Bark on wood slices

    I am working on items for Christmas. I cut oak slices about 3/8" thick, 3" diameter for ornaments. I plan to wood burn on them and would like to have the bark stay on. Is there a way to seal/preserve them so the bark does? I have googled and found many different answers. Thought I would pick your brains. Thanks

    Hi Dean, What I always do and seems to work is , I put about 3 Good Coats of Poly U on the Piece. I really Soak the Bark . That is Simple and Holds Good. I did that on the Rotted pieces of Walnut and is Fine. Merle

      Hi Dean
      You can always use an air compressor and a brad nailer, leaves very small holes

          Hi Dean, I don't think you will Sorry. Try it on a Piece of Scrap first to be sure. Merle

                Hi Dean, Don't try to cover the Bark in 1 Coat , I found about 3 good Coats works well. Merle
