Ok guys, thinking ahead for our next meeting. I think we should plan one for sometime in May. I have a couple of demos in mind already. I also want your input as to things we can do as well. We need someone to volunteer to host the meeting.

Also if you will pm me your email address, I will be glad to send out notice about our meetingby email.

The demos so far are:

Default Demos

First of all, My wife really enjoyed the meeting and asked me to check into the next one. May is getting a little warm for me to go out in. But, I will try anyway. I have been making bottle stoppers for awhile by pouring resin over wood body and have worked out some issues that If you are interested in, I can share them. I was given a piece of that spalted wood and it's full of worm holes. I cleaned them out and getting ready to pour resin into the holes to see how that would turn out.

I think a 'useless wood' demo would be very interesting.

BTW have you tried putting the wood/resin combo under either pressure or vacuum? It's supposed to help the resin get into the holes with less air bubbles.

I've also read about some people trying warming one or both parts of the resin before mixing to make it thinner (less viscous) so it can soak in easier. I can't remember the results, so you might want to research that before you try it. :)

Can't afford a vacuum, just another to tie up space in my already crowded shop. I stood the piece up so that the resin would flow upward and rolled it around. Haven't turned it yet. I've been sick. My Dr's are scratching their heads trying to figure out why I'm always short of breath, coughing and passing out. I'm scheduled for a heart PET scan this friday and still waiting for results on my lung CAT scan that was done a week ago. I had to stay out of my dusty shop for a bit. Keep me in your prayers.
