I have been following these resin wood creations, and love them all,even the pinkish one! Trying to figure out how you do it and maybe this winter I will have to give it a try. The blonde loves blue so she says good job a well.Keep them coming.DK

Absolutely beautiful. The third photo gives me the impression of photographs you see taken of the earth from space with visible weather system/clouds. I really like it =D> :lol: =D>

Very nice, do you make your own moulds? What was the size of the cast before turning?

Regards

Once again a beautiful shape flawlessly turned and finished, but I just don't get the resin/wood combination - it doesn't work for me, sorry. I'd probably like it in all wood or all resin...

Do you have any problem with contamination or the wood with resin dust or vice-versa?

George, I love your hybrid turnings and decided to try some myself. I seem to have great difficulty getting the resin to stick to the wood is there a secret to this and if so would you mind sharing it.

Hi Alex

I get asked this allot-I’m sorry but I’m not willing to tell you how it’s done or which products to use. I’ve spent far too much money and countless hours to get to the stage of development I’m at to simply share the answers freely. I know it’s not within the spirit of the sharing woodturning community and I have helped and still do help lots of people with woodturning problems but this part of my woodturning passion is special to me and not for sharing.... yet.

However I will tell you that all the answers you are looking for are easily found on the internet.
