    Default Bodenfund wood stalk - wet and old (how to care)

    Hello,
    I have an old handle of a hand grenade.
    He was found in the water. He is wet and decayed.
    The finder put it in sugar water (?) Why?
    How can I take care of him? The finder says he could shrink and become fragile.
    What should I do? Let it dry or rub with oil?

    Many Thanks

    I would let it dry down a bit and then cover it in Cuprinol wood hardener which will bond the wood together with the resin compound.

    Cheers

    I do not know if I should accept that. Maybe the wood is too old.
    Or do you think it's a good deal?

    A bit of a risk I would think. Preserving water logged wood is a specialist conservation process. Is it worth the trouble?

    I let it dry slowly.
    Now he burst. Quickly wet again.
    I sprinkle it with oil every day.
    Now he is blanching. I will always reduce the oil.
    Lets see what happens.
