Come to the next Los Hackers meeting and learn some wood finishing tricks to trick out all of your wood projects! Trick out your skateboard deck with a fine wood finish! Launch your laser cut and etched wood projects to the next level!
A classical wood finish is a thing of beauty that can last for many generations. It isn’t difficult, but it takes lots of time and patience. Of course there are other options to put a smooth surface on even rough wood surfaces that dry in hours, not days.
Four wood finishing techniques will be presented and Hackers will be able to try their hand at each one.
- Traditional sand, stain, sand, seal, sand, wax (the “heirloom finish”)
- Turpentine\Linseed Oil (refinishing)
- Polyurethane (one step finishing)
- Oil (food contact surfaces)
