Help On Drying Red Palm Tree Please
My name is will & i'm from Australia. The question is i have cut a Palm tree so i can make a bowl. Now i have spoken to some people & they say they don't use this timber as it has oil in it red palm oil & its very hard to dry... It is such a pretty timber fluro orange with red dots on it so so nice. I really would love to make a bowl out of it & hopefully it would keep its color? Do you now if it would? Also i want to have a semi gloss on it but what would one use as it has to be pretty durable as i will be washing it & stuff. What are the differences between Oil applications & Lacquer? Are there any other methods? Sorry for sounding really stupid i have always used Lacquer in my life "Very short life" but want to explore other stuff that might even suite my application better than Lacquer? I want to make several bowls so i would require something that is very Durable as i will be washing these bowls constantly so i really don't want anything to waer out or have the timber get wet again... This is a great website very informative really nice & some crazy pictures of peoples work always nice to see people that share the same interests so thanks.
