Anyone on here ever work with mulberry? If so how do you keep the nice orange/yellow color on ? i sawed some a few years ago for a guy and after drying, it oxidized to the chocolate brown ,then he decided i could just keep it, so now i have some 2 1/2 inch slabs do do something with. any thoughts?

i understand that pentacryl, an expensive green wood stabilizer, stands a chance of preserving some of that color


osage orange wood has a similar color and i guess is less likely to alter or fade in color

i have slabbed lots of mullberry landscape removal trees here, and it has always aged to doe brown

here's a table i made with slabs cut from a dead standing mullberry, with center blocks cut from pecky desert willow, on model t axles for legs

and another aged slab of mullbery on a vintage craftstman table saw base
