Working Green Wood with PEG by Patrick Spielman describes how to turn inexpensive green wood into clocks, tables, bowls, table legs, and more. PEG is an easy-to-use and readily obtainable chemical with a long name: polyethylene glycol 1000. Once you treat your green wood with PEG, it will no longer shrink, warp, swell, check or crack--ever, no matter where or how you use it! Spielman tells you everything you need to know about using PEG: sources of supply, what wood to use, how to mix the solution, and how to treat, dry, and finish the wood.

LIGHTFAST WOODSTAINS
These woodstains are alcohol soluble powders that will not fade on exposure to sunlight as will ordinary alcohol soluble dyes. They are generally dissolved in methyl alcohol and then used to stain whatever wood you desire. They can also be added to lacquer to color it by dissolving it in a mixture of ethyl alcohol and diacetone alcohol.

EARTH COLOR PIGMENTS
These are extra fine ground dry pigments for coloring, mixing and tinting. They can be used to tint paint, enamel, fillers, shellacs, lacquers or any type liquid requiring color. They are also used for spot color replacement on all types of furniture. Because of fineness, they mix readily with any of the above mentioned mediums to produce smooth opaque finishes. Make a smooth paste with the proper thinner before adding the heavier bodied liquid.

BRONZE AND ALUMINUM POWDERS
These metallic pigments are flat thin particles of polished metal made from mixtures of copper, zinc, tin, and antimony. Red, green, blue and amaranth shades are produced by adding dyes. Copper and aluminum powders are made from pure copper and pure aluminum. They are used for decorative effects with lacquers and varnishes. One to two pounds per gallon of vehicle are necessary to produce good coatings. Mix only enough for the job at hand as gelation may occur on prolonged standing. After mixing, the vehicle can be brushed or sprayed. The powder should be mixed with the thinner first to prevent lumping then the vehicle is added. A color card is available upon request.
