    How to Season A slice from a Beech Stump?

    No need to apologise Tony, you were absolutely correct about the issues of using it for a table. The timber is simply a random by-product of the tree felling process - the final cut to level the stump after the stem had been removed. I found the shape and grain pattern appealing, hence my...

    How to Season A slice from a Beech Stump?

    For those very reasons I was actually thinking of using it as a large outdoor clock or thermometer. The slice is not uniform thickness and even with a large chainsaw, difficult to true up, so not much good as a table top.

    How to Season A slice from a Beech Stump?

    Many thanks everyone, kind of what I expected, but worth asking in case someone had found a magic solution for splitting. I have a log store that allows the wind through, but minimises rain entry, so will put it in there for now, possibly with cut logs stacked on either side to slow the...

    Cascamite WBP

    Cascamite WBP

    I did the same yesterday and tried it last night - way better than the Cascamite I bought a coupe of weeks ago. Set sufficiently to remove clamps after 5 hours (in a cold garage) and was properly cured this morning (remnants in the pot were like glass). I think you will be pleased with it ! Dave

    Cascamite WBP

    I have just joined the forum to share my experience with the 'new' Cascamite. I have used the original product successfully for many years on outdoor projects and bought my last 1.5Kg tub in 2017. I immediately repackaged it into small (200g) containers and used the last of it a couple of...
