I have a project in mind where I want to construct some parts of it with
strips of bark cut to size. These are panels about 6'' by 3".
I have been able to glue it to some MDF to make it ridgid but I want to
use just the bark if possible.
Not as good as you might think. Your situation is vastly different. The
turner is concerned with adhering the bark to the wood through or after
drying a turning. You're trying to use bark as wood, if I read you
So you've got an easy task with our birch, or cork, or any number of trees
with thick spongy bark, or a nearly impossible one with trees with thin,
Scarf joints can be hidden behind a surface pretty well, and provide good
gluing area for bark to bark. Bark to substrate is probably easier with the
hot glue crafters use.
