Pentacryl Wood Stabilizer, Gallon
Using Pentacryl on oak trunk/log cross sections (3 foot diameter, 4"-6" thick). Cracking has been minimal, and appears to have stopped. Product looks to be working. We have four pieces and have been treating since April. We are now starting the 3rd gallon. Intent is to make tables.

Grand Rapids MI
I bought this product after having a bowl which I had just turned crack almost completely through. I used the product as directed on a nice piece of spalted wood and then turned my nicest bowl to date. It replaced the water in the wood and allowed me to turn the piece without the fear that it would crack or check.
I can't give this a complete okay until I've used it for months but I do like the way the Pentacryl soaks in, not running away. I've found that you want to put a green turned item in a paper sack after treating with Pentacryl, otherwise it still will crack or check. I tried this on a small vase (after having put several treated bowls in a sack I thought I'd try leaving this setting on the shop table) and the next morning it had a tiny crack. Of course, this is green oak and I've heard that oak is difficult to use green. So, like I said, I need to give this a lot longer trial on different types of wood. So far, the only drawback I see is the extreme price. It's going to get expensive real quick because one little green bowl really soaks it up again and again.
I like for every carver to try thi
I use it on my chainsaw carvings and it works great!
