Bill Juhl - Woodturning Finishes

Fasten your seat belts, Bill will present the equivalent of a two day class on woodturning finishes in a little over an hour.

Topics will include:

  • Definition of a finish … what is and what is not a “finish”
  • Functionality and utility considerations for finishes
  • Repairability and maintenance
  • What are “Food safe” finishes?
  • Classes of finishes including evaporative finishes (lacquer, shellac, water-based), Reactive Finishes (True Oils: [tung, linseed, walnut]), catalyzed lacquer, varnishes, others that undergo a chemical change
  • Specific finishes:  walnut oil, linseed oil, tung oil, Danish Oil finishes, varnishes, Waterlox, wiping polyurethane, lacquer, catalyzed lacquer,  friction polishes, French Polish, Paints, Milk Paint, cyanoacrylic acid (CA)
  • Application:  off lathe and on lathe
  • Drying and curing time and processes
  • Waxes

And list of finishes, item by item and what I think are pluses and minuses  

Monthly meetings include a display of members turned items and a raffle.  Guest and members of the public are always welcome.
