Class Status: Open
Instructor: William Haines
Skill Level: Beginner

Tools Required: Silicone Mat (158721)
Description: You just found the perfect piece of mesquite for a project. Perfect grain, rich color, and beautiful coloring. It's perfect! Except, you know, for that big knot hole right there in the middle. Or, you're turning a bowl, forget to seal it when you step away, and the next day it has split almost in two. It happens to everyone, but there's a way to salvage such situations. The solution is epoxy. Epoxies and other resins allow woodworkers to salvage otherwise unusable woods by providing an adhesive, a structural filler, and a simple means of inlaying other materials. Intro to Epoxy will teach you how to apply epoxy and polyester resin, and how to use them to repair checks, cracks, and knot holes. Inlay techniques will be covered as well, from the popular turquoise nuggets, to eye catching metallic pigments. Epoxy can be messy, please wear clothes you would not mind discarding after the class, and possibly bring an extra change with you, just in case.

Part 2: Wednesday, August 23, 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Class Status: Open
Instructor: William Haines
Skill Level: Beginner
Class Size: 1-6
Tools Required: Silicone Mat (158721)
Description: You just found the perfect piece of mesquite for a project. Perfect grain, rich color, and beautiful coloring. It's perfect! Except, you know, for that big knot hole right there in the middle. Or, you're turning a bowl, forget to seal it when you step away, and the next day it has split almost in two. It happens to everyone, but there's a way to salvage such situations. The solution is epoxy. Epoxies and other resins allow woodworkers to salvage otherwise unusable woods by providing an adhesive, a structural filler, and a simple means of inlaying other materials. Intro to Epoxy will teach you how to apply epoxy and polyester resin, and how to use them to repair checks, cracks, and knot holes. Inlay techniques will be covered as well, from the popular turquoise nuggets, to eye catching metallic pigments. Epoxy can be messy, please wear clothes you would not mind discarding after the class, and possibly bring an extra change with you, just in case.
