I am trying to cure some fresh cut basswood but the bark keeps falling off. Do you have any products that would help preserve the bark during the curing process?
The area between the bark and wood does not have a strong bond in most
types of wood. What you would want to do would be to reinforce this
bond. We do have CPES™, which should penetrate the bark if allowed to
soak enough. Whether it would penetrate the bark enough to strengthen
the bond between the bark and the wood is something that you would have
to experiment with to find out.
