Experimenting with stabilizing cork to make unique handle material.
The process is just the same as any other wood stabilization but I call it an experiment because I am not using proper cork wood but one of those mixture of small particles of cork and sawdust that is used, like this one I got, for many application around the house: under pot, wine stopper and so on.
As it turns out this material can be stabilized but the end result is not as hard as other wood I tried to stabilize. I guess the particle composition plays a big role!
I love the look of it anyway, it’s probably not as durable as other handle I made but it’s surely one of the most unique.
