February Discussion:
Options for Filling Cracks and Voids in Wood With Gary Barnes

Gary Barnes will present a very interesting and timely discussion this month on options for filling cracks, knots, and other voids in your turnings. Even though none of us ever makes mistakes, these materials and others can be used to fix unintentional "voids" as well.

Options for filling cracks and voids include using CA glue, coloured epoxy, turquoise, synthetic sand, powdered granite, and even coffee grounds. Gary will share the lessons he has learned over the years with using these materials to fill cracks and voids in wood. Don't miss this informative discussion on ways to enhance your woodturnings by using infill materials.

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 will look forward to seeing you all at Woodcraft. Take care and best wishes to you and yours!
