Keith Lackner shares his journey from furnituremaker to woodturner to resin artist and teacher in this groundbreaking how-to guide to creating with resin and wood through turning in his book Woodturning with Resin.
Creative people are discovering the fun in using resin to create turning blanks, item encapsulations, bowls, river tables and more. To meet their project needs, Woodcraft continues to expand its line of resins and related products – and to encourage these makers Woodcraft will be sponsoring a contest in March.
A $250 Woodcraft Gift Card may be waiting for you – if you create a showstopping ring, pen, handle, river table or something else made with resin or a combo like resin with burl.
From March 1 through March 31, Woodcraft will accept online entries for “Pour to Win” – a competition to see who can imagine and then create a unique piece made by an original resin pour that will please the Woodcraft judges and the public. Learn more here!
The unusual thing about this particular box is that it’s turned from a hybrid blank. Resin casting, a means of molding acrylic material into blanks for turning, has become very popular in recent years and hybrid blanks are a big part of the trend. “Hybrid” is a term coined for combining wood and resin together to create beautiful and unique designs.
