Making transparent wood 5

This is probably the longest video that I've ever posted on my channel, but I wanted it to be as complete as possible!

A few months ago, I saw a video made by AvE where he tried to make transparent wood. After seeing it, I was really interested in trying it out for myself, and well, I did.

This video was originally released on Patreon on Nov. 10, before I left to Japan for vacation. I will be back on the 23rd though!

You can tell he's a brilliant chemist by the way he used the table saw.

Making transparent wood:
- So you basically have to throw a lot of chemicals on a piece of wood until it dissolves and you put epoxy on it, and you end up with a piece of transparent epoxy where once there was wood.

“We have to remove the ligma and replace it with epoxy”
“You mean lignin?”
“No, we have to get the ligma out first”
“What’s ligma?”

I'd love to see a redo on this project, and you could work with Peter Brown, who knows a LOT about resin, and maybe your combined knowledge could make something amazing!
