Subject: Using your product on splated maple
Date: Tuesday, August 30, 2016

I saw your info on line and hope you can help me. I have two beautiful pieces of spalted maple approximately the same size (shown below) I wish to use these pieces to make coffee table tops and have similar wood for the legs.

Two questions:

1. Is your product applicable for hardening and finishing these projects?

Yes, our CPES will harden and seal the wood, and highlight the grain patterns. The CPES-coated wood can be overcoated with any additional clear coatings, such as varnish, lacquer, polyurethane, which is what is usually done to add protection to the surface.

2. In the piece just below two areas are vacant of wood - a hole and another recessed area. I’d like to fill those areas with a clear substance to make the table top complete. Can you suggest a product and method for accomplishing this?

Our Layup & Laminating Resin will cure to a light amber color, which would probably match very well with the spalted maple.

Thank You,
Kirk H

Kirk,

You’re welcome! Lovely pieces of wood.

Thanks for your very helpful advice to my recent question regarding finishing splated maple. Since I’ve done only a minimal of finishing spalted woods and filling vacancies in wood during my 30-plus years of woodworking, I want to confirm with you that I can use your Layup & Laminating Resin to fill vacancies this large in wood as shown below. As soon as I get the OK I’ll order the products from you you suggested earlier today .

Thanks,

Spalted Maple

Kirk,

Yes, no problem. Our suggested 1-time mix-pour max is two quarts, and the quantity you describe is significantly less than that. In any case, after one pour sets (24 hours) another pour can be added on top with complete chemical bonding.
