September Discussion/Demonstration:

Waterborne Finishing Products and Application Techniques

This month's LSWA meeting demonstration will feature a special guest demonstrator, Glenn Zubler, of M.L. Campbell Wood Finishing Systems. Glenn will discuss new waterborne lacquer coatings that feature low VOC's and a trouble-free application, with an appearance that mirrors traditional solvent based finishing systems. He will also discuss stains and glazes in the waterborne family and answer questions about waterborne and solvent based finishes. Please join us for this special demonstration on new finishing products that are available for woodturnings.

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, or Pete Allen at (281) 364-9765. I'm looking forward to seeing you all at Pete's. Take care and best wishes to you and yours!
