Tonight's Chat: Crushed Stone Inlay Techniques

Steve Russell
>Hello to the group,

Please join us tonight for our weekly Turning Chat. This week our topic will be:

Crushed Stone Inlay Techniques: There are several protocols you can use to inlay crushed stones into your woodturnings. Inlaying crushed stone is a very exciting artistic path to explore and can serve as a creative springboard towards your continued growth as an artist. Crushed stone and timber are a natural and provocative combination, producing a unique tactile and visual harmony when the two materials are joined. Join us as we discuss various protocols for inlaying crushed stone into your woodturnings. We will also discuss tools and techniques for making your own crushed stone, as well as the best adhesive binders to use with your inlay.

We will start the chat with a 15 minute review of 2 selected works by our WC friends. If you are interested in having your work reviewed at the turning chat, remember to email Ron 1 or 2 (max.) photos of some of your recent work (completed or unfinished, in process etc.) for our "Show and Tell" session. Please indicate whether you are submitting the photos as "Completed Work" for a critique, or as an "Assistance Needed" submission that you would like some type of help, or assistance with.

Turning Chat room opens at 9:00pm EDT (For meet and greet)
Show-N-Tell starts at 9:30pm EDT
Main Topic starts at 9:45pm EDT
Post Chat Wrap-Up starts at 10:30pm EDT (For extended discussions if desired)

See you there!
