Resin and Aluminum / A Collab With Zac Higgins

We headed south to Carson City Nevada for a collab with Zac Higgins from NV Woodwerks. He has a awesome shop, I was like a kid in a candy store! Zac and I cast a resin and aluminum blank while we were there. I turned the piece on the lathe using East Wood Tools new carbide negative rake cutters. These newly designed cutters really make turning resin a joy.


Easy Airbrushing With Stencils / Myrtlewood Platter

I turned this Myrtlewood platter on the lathe, and put some detail on the rim with my new Easy Wood Micro Detailer. After turning and sanding it up to 600 grit. I painted a Maple leaf using a airbrush and stencil from Chroma Craft. I finished the piece off with three coats of high gloss lacquer

Recycled Skateboard Project / Woodturning

Mobile shop road trip! This project is made out of recycled skateboards. Paul from Made By Skate Boarding made this awesome blank for me to turn at the demo on Saturday. We had a great time hanging out with a group of really cool people.

Hybrid Casting and Myrtlewood Stand

Zac cast this really cool hybrid blank with one of my paint chips in it. After I got home I decided to make a stand out of Myrtlewood.
We had such a great time at the AAW symposium! I got some great pictures from the show, and added them to the video.
