I have been off for a while, playing in the shop.. learning to turn pens. Lot’s of fun pens. as well as all the other stuff I turn. but it leaves an awe-full lot f dust and shavings.
So it happens that I got a Dust Deputy for my shop vac and was cleaning all of said shavings today and thought.. hmm I wonder itf I can cast all of this into polyester and create a pen blank from my turning trash??
I will be trying it here shortly and will post my results!
