August Discussion/Demonstration

Buffing Cured Finishes with Dennis Tholen

Our August meeting will feature our resident finishing expert, Dennis Tholen. Dennis will be demonstrating how to finish the finish by buffing out a cured finish. He will also be demonstrating wet sanding and polishing. This is the third and final chapter of our special three part series which started with members turning their own bowl at our recent mini retreat, last month’s demonstration on how to colour your project using an airbrush and this month’s demonstration on buffing and polishing the cured finish. You don’t want to miss this special demonstration where you will learn various tips and tricks to getting that perfect finish on your woodturnings.

If you want to learn how to make your finishes look like glass,
don't miss this demo from our resident finishing expert.

Remember to bring some of your recent projects: Be sure to bring some of your recent turned projects for our Show and Tell, or Show and Ask session. This can be a completed turning, or one that you are still working on. During our Show and Tell, you will have the opportunity to show your turning to the group and tell us a little about how you turned it, what finish you used and if you encountered any challenges when turning, sanding, or finishing the piece.

Everyone in the club is interested in what you've been doing at the lathe. If you need help with a project you're working on, bring it and let's discuss it during the Show and Ask session. There is a lot of experience in the club and everyone is always happy to help.

Invite your woodturning friends: Please invite any of your woodturning friends who you think may be interested in joining our club. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me (Steve) at 713-826-0046 Cell. I'm looking forward to seeing you all at Woodcraft. Take care and best wishes to you and yours!

LSWA President
