Hello to the group,
I recently built a website (URL below in signature area) and have been
adding several articles to the library section that some of you maybe
interested in... Although the articles are turning oriented, the finishing
articles contain universal information about the topic that are applicable
for traditional woodworking as well. Currently the library contains articles
Basic Procedures for Turning Green Wood Bowls
How to Use the Kelton Centre Saver System
"Fluid Texturing" with the Arbortech Mini-Grinder
Pen Turning with Alternative Materials
Wax Finish Roundup
Oil Finish Roundup
Boiling Green Wood to Reduce Drying Degrade
Tips for Better Boiling
Bandsaw Blade Resharpening
Cyanoacrylates, a.k.a. Super Glues: A Technical Discussion
Reducing Checking in Green Wood with Wax Emulsion Sealers
Creating High Gloss Finishes on Plastic and Stabilized Pen Blanks
Creating Unique Decorative Surfaces
Selecting Turning Tools and Sharpening
If you visit my website, simply click on the Library button and all of the
articles are linked from that page. We will be adding more articles
constantly, with an initial goal of 100 articles in the near future. It
takes a bit of time to do the HTML coding and to set up the pages, so the
articles are in text format currently. We will be adding pictures very soon,
so check back.
Several of the articles are technical in nature, but most are an easy read.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Take care
and best wishes to all of you for a safe and happy holiday season!
