WWGOA LIVE is brought to you by:
Hi George, I have some 20+ yr old clear heart redwood – mostly 2 x4 – 8′ – been planed already down to about 1.25″ – afraid to re-saw as it might become to thin, but want to use for desktop; how best to fasten it together (pocket screws, etc? ) and what would be best finish for that material that is that old?
I love redwood. I would not resaw this for use in a desktop because you will end up with material that is too thin by the time you plane it again, then true it up for use in the panel.
In terms of fastening it together, I would edge glue it. Some tips here: wwgoa.com/video/gluing-up-panels/
For finish, just use a clear product and let the beautiful grain do it’s magic. I would use either a penetrating oil such as this https://amzn.to/3aspuyt or an oil based poly such as this: http://amzn.to/2FhLSvn
