More Information on this Workshop

In this class students will learn the basic skills of prepping wood for resin casting. Keith will share his three golden rules of resin casting which will assure a solid and colorful blank to turn into a box. Rule 1 is probably the most important, which is to properly clean, stabilize and remove moisture. Rule 2 is how to choose the best product (resins) for your needs and how much to use. Rule 3 is pressure; most resins, especially urethanes, require pressure in order to get bubble free castings. Once students have established a usable blank, they will design a lidded box following the 1/3, 2/3 rule for a pleasing esthetic shape. Keith will demonstrate the best way, and which tools to use, when turning hybrid blanks into boxes. He will demonstrate how to make lids for turned boxes that fit perfect. After the box is turned and the lid fits, Keith will share his steps to creating a finish that will set your work your work apart from the rest.
