Our wood-turning group is committed to the advancement of wood-turning.


Join us for our next meeting March 26th, 12:00 PM at the Gardiner Community Center.

The Strait Turners Meeting for March will be featuring a demonstration of wood finishing by Jay Shepard titled "Finishing, Buffing and More.
People say “I don’t normally like shiny finishes but yours is the best finish I have ever seen.  How do you do that?” 
Well, whether it’s a simple wood bowl oiled and waxed or a lacquered urn, it’s a process that starts with good surface preparation and ends with patience and attention to final surface quality and a good buff.

This demonstration will cover:

  • Preparing a piece for finishing – sanding and sealing
  • Buff finish on plain wood                                              
  • Using hard wax/oil finishes and buffing                      
  • Water-based lacquer finishes                                        
  • Repairing dents, dings, and voids                                
  • HVLP spray gun set-up and use                                 
  • Wet sanding lacquer finishes                                      
  • Buffing lacquer finishes                                              
Please Come and Join us
