Great Polyurethane Finishes Demo

I presented a new “Great Polyurethane Finishes” Demo for Nutmeg Woodturners Club in Brookfield CT on 1/14/2012.

The demo was very well received.   People understood that I was presenting food for thought. Before giving the demo I was afraid the subject would be boring or provoke a religious debate.

I created a new handout for the demo.  It is on my web site here:

Please contact me if you would like me to present demo for your club or symposium.

Updated 11/29/2019: Don Pencil is no longer in business. See my “8” Buffing Wheel, 4” Bowl Buff, and 8” Long Buffing Adapter” blog entry for updates to the above handout. See

My New Woodturning Blog

I decided to start my own new woodturning blog. Why?

  • – Because my Wednesday Night Woodturning group says I have good ideas that I should share with others.
  • – Because I often find new tools, etc that work well for me and that I would like to share with others.
  • – Because I am often to lazy to write up all my little ideas for Club Newsletters and Magazines. I just want to jot down a few sentences.

This blog will cover the following:

  • – New Tools. Mostly woodturning tools.
  • – Ideas for new woodturning projects. Mostly what we are doing on Wednesday Nights.
  • – Announcements for any classes I teach.
  • – Announcements for any demos I do.
  • – Announcement for any new handouts I add to my web site.

This blog will NOT allow the following:

  • – Any chit chat in any way shape or form.
  • – Political or religious stuff.
  • – Any negative comments. All comments will be held and moderated by me.
    It’s my Blog if I don’t like what you have to say then it goes in the bit bucket. Go start your own Blog if you want to say negative things!
  • – Positive comments will be allowed only if they are non trivial.
  • – No spam! I have all the spam filtering stuff turned on.

Frequency of Blog Posts:

  • – I plan on posting to this blog roughly once a week. Probably on Fridays.
  • – You can safely subscribe to this blog. I will not fill up your email with a lot of crap.
