Hello all!

Newbie here and need to get some info.

I was helping with the removal of a large pine tree. Not sure what type. Anyways, while they were cutting it up the tree company graciously offered to cut me a big disc to make a table top.

I have been reading up that I should soak it in a PEG solution to avoid it cracking as it dries. However, I cannot find where to get this stuff anywhere. I live in a very rural area. The disc is about 2" thick and 2.5' in diameter and has a beautiful bark rim that I would hate to loose.

Anyone have suggestions as to how I can preserve this without it cracking from shrinking too much? I also have a stump that the disc will be placed on, so not sure if that needs to be treated as well.

Thank you!

Denise

Anti Freeze

Seriously?

Wow had no clue. It doesn't change the color of the wood or should I dilute with water?

Thanks!

Where to buy

Thank you guys!!

The hunt is on to try and find this stuff before my disc starts to crack. :)

They won't ship to me because I only have PO Box...doh!
