Molding and Resin Casting #1: Sometimes a WoodWorker - Sometimes Not

03-12-2022 10:40 PM by John Smith | 1 comment »

Being an active “craftsman” for most of my adult life, I’ve had the opportunity to enjoy many hobbies in one form or another. Woodworking and Carving were mostly at the forefront but doing things with my hands in the artistic realm is always with me. Here is a project that I’ve been working on this week just to take a break and do something different. It’s not woodworking – (I actually don’t know what category you would place it in). It is carving, wh...

50 for 50 - turning 50 as I turn 50 #37: Another apple and resin bowl

08-21-2019 01:36 PM by mnguy | 0 comments »

This was supposed to be somewhat of a ‘winged’ bowl, as I started with a half log chunk that was ~7” across and 12” long. The log had other ideas. I got chunks breaking off both long edges so I ended up turning it round vs. oblong. In retrospect I could have flipped the blank and maybe taken the chipped out areas out by removing material from the top / face of the bowl, but I took all off as I turned the back of the bowl and put a tenon on for the foot. The result was ...

Wood stabilizing #3: Unwrapped and unplugged

11-24-2018 05:47 PM by Dave Polaschek | 8 comments »

One of the things I was trying to find out about wood stabilizing when I embarked on this adventure was whether it would be possible to work the resulting pieces of wood with hand tools. I’m not completely sure of the answer yet, but I have a few observations. But I’m getting ahead of myself. The first thing you notice when unwrapping the wood from the foil is that there’s excess plastic everywhere. It sticks to the foil, it sticks the foil to the wood, and it crinkles and flakes off a...

Woodturning Projects #1: Epoxy Resin and a Cracked Blank

07-20-2015 02:15 AM by UncleDave | 4 comments »

I was talking to a friend at work about turning, and he said he had thought about trying it at one time. He put the cart before the horse, so to speak, and bought some blanks but never got a lathe. He had them sitting around for a long time, some nice cherry blanks, and gave them to me. The blanks he had were all cut out of the tree pretty poorly I think, as they contain wood really close to the center of the trunk. The first blank I did wasn’t that bad with the cracking, but this large...

Resin/Wood casting #1: Wood/Resin Casting Tutorial

01-23-2015 07:15 AM by TexasBlanks | 8 comments »

Here ya go guys and gals as requested. I am going to give my best representation of “MY” way that I do the casting process. First of all I start with a dry piece of wood (no more than 13% moisture) that I have stabilized in “Cactus Juice” www.turntex.com this hardens and stabilizes the punky or soft parts of the wood that you will mostly find in burls and spalted wood. After I stabilize it i take my ROTOZIP tool and use it to basically clean up the voids and cracks tha...

Anyone know how they fill the wooden knife handles with resin? Tung oil? Varnish? Is it soaked for a long time then wiped off?

In the wood shop today #7: Applying oil/resin finish to curly walnut trestle coffee table

08-08-2012 09:19 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 3 comments »

In this video I’m applying my 3 part hand rubbed oil/resin finish to a Canadian Black Walnut coffee table base. I talk more about what and amount of ingredients in my 3 part hand rubbed oil resin finish. I can’t call it mine though, pretty sure it’s been used by many many people. I initially read about it in a Sam Maloof book I think it was called Woodworker. Well I hope you enjoy the video, I finish it up by showing the curly walnut book matched live edge coffee table to...
