On Saturday Nov 19 Mark Sillay will cover the following topics, in addition to reinforcing the material from Friday’s demo:
TWO SANDING SECRETS: These will change your finishing attitude forever. One I learned in
Drafting class at West High and the other I learned looking at moonlight over the water at the
ODORLESS NO SAND SUPERGLUE FINISHING TECHNIQUE FOR LARGE WOOD ART
OBJECTS. Parfix 3408 and Vonax. You will never spray lacquer again.
OFFSET TURNING USING A REGULAR CHUCK AND REVOLVING TAILSTOCK PLATE: I will
show 3 different ways to attach the plate. I will also show how to present the grain you want to
show in your art piece rather than just accepting whatever appears randomly.
ONE SHADOW LINE TURNING: How to make plain wood stand out in the gallery.
INSERTS AND FINIALS FOR HOLLOW FORMS: All the tricks for success in turning, fitting and
finishing inserts and finials. I will demonstrate how to use a Sharpie Marker and super glue to
make any wood look like glassy black ebony.
SMALL VENEER LAYERS FOR BOWLS: Fun for the mini lathe crowd that want a colorful result
without all of the exactness required in segmented work.
ETC. Ask questions and I will be happy to demonstrate any thing you want.
