I was called to a lock job today by Pete Bonchonsky, son of Mike Bonchonsky an original member of the club.While on the job I was speaking with Pete’s wife mentioning I was a member of the club and fellow woodworker. with that she mentioned she has about a 2’slab cut from a Ginkgo tree from their backyard.She was interested in making a table out of it. I said I have a great idea. Let’s get the club together to make something out of the slab to honor Mike Bonchonsky’s Memory.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I believe it is more of a carving wood, kind of soft. Is she just looking for a keepsake?

Hi guys ,
I realized I used the wrong terminology. I called it a slab of wood . Its actually a trunk piece of wood.

Rick, Have to get some sealant on there before it splits. It’s nice and clean..

You might want to ask the turners for help in making some legs for this. Then you can flatten the top and give the Bonchonskys a nice keepsake.

Thanks Guys for your replies.
I’ll take on your suggestion Joe Thanks.
Question for Charlie. What type of sealant would you suggest?

Rick, It’s called Anchor seal.I’m sure there are quite a few brands but that’s the one I have used. You brush it on both sides of the unfinished wood. Without a sealer of some type the wood dries out unevenly, causing cracks and splits.
