Carved wooden relief

From: Richard Saunders <alirs%msu.dnet>

Michael Cogswell might do well to investigate PEG (polyethylene glycol)
for his cracking wood carving.  PEG is widely used by woodcarvers to
mitigate shrinkage in green and partially cured woods.  It was used on
the preservation of the 17th century Swedish man-of-war Vasa, which sunk
in Stockholm harbour minutes after launch.  Contact an architectural
preservationist for specific information.
