A few years ago I tried making transparent wood and it kind of worked. The pieces that I made were somewhat okay, but I was never really happy with the result.
I finally decided to try it again though!

I wonder what would happen conducting this experiment in space without gravity possibly causing the topside to be different from the bottom. Be funny to go all the way to space to conduct this experiment only to find out it wasn't gravity at all but the mixing time and heating/cooling steps lol

So this is a bit random, but I am absolutely mesmerized by cold bluing steel. I just found your channel recently and I feel like you’re the person to ask how and why the raw steel turns black. I was hoping maybe you could do a short video on what is taking place and how it helps prevent rusting.

At 26:39/43:55 you talk about the rougher top. Would it have worked to use micro mesh polishing pads? @peterbrown uses them when he is polishing up his resin and they get things crystal clear. Maybe that could be another test you do?

It turned out in my opinion as great as you could have hoped for. I really think you achieved the clarity you were looking for early on when the finishes were rough. Any car guy watching would have said, stop right there, sand and polish to increase the clarity 👍👍 I think you should go after a piece about 6 millimeters. So have you tested it for strength?

with all the comments sure someone has suggested this but on the final bake maybe add a o-ring slightly thicker than the wood giving 3cm clearance off the corners and use way less weight jut a thought very cool video nice to see someone tackle really tough problems thanks

Loved this video, and love NileRed. But have to confess I'm confused as to the practical application of wood as glass alternative when litterrally a) we already have glass...so why is using wood an improvement? And b) the plastic you use to coat the wood is 100% transparent....why not just use the plastic? What's the purpose of the wood at all??? If its just structural... refer to point a).

As a woodworker, I know that surface finishes look their best when the wood is smooth BEFORE applying the finish. I couldn't help but wonder if your results would have come out better if you had sanded the balsa down to a very fine grit abrasive prior to other or the other steps (or maybe after removing the lignin, so that you would be leveling out the grain that was likely swollen by the process).

On the one hand it is an interesting project, on the other hand it is not really making transparent wood. It's more like making plexi glas with a wood structure.

The science and your presentation of it is fascinating, however, I am failing to see the point here. If you are infusing the wood with acrylic (or any plastic), what is the purpose of the wood? Strength?
