    March 25 Finishing Workshop Student list

    The Raleigh finishing workshop, March 25

    Here is my current student list - there have been a few swaps so I hope this is right, if not please correct me:

    drw - Donn
    philck - Phil
    hmerkle - Hank
    fred p - Fred
    mpholway - matt
    holyschmidtski - Jake
    Danny Batchelor
    dswalker - David
    dwebb - Webb
    Jeremy
    marinosr - Richard

    Class starts at 9:00 and ends at about 3:00

    All students should bring a respirator, but I have some extras if needed
    All students should also bring a 8 x 12 of decent wood to practice shellac finishing on, but I have plenty if needed

    Lunch is non-tomato based chili in fresh bread bowls - let me know if there are any special dietary needs

    I will send out the address to my shop via Private Message to all students on Thursday night

    I'll be there. It has been a while since the original post. Are we supposed to make a donation to the website? This will be my first workshop.

    We have been asking for a $30 donation to the site to help offset costs associated with the site. We are a 501c charity.

    Those dollars are to support the site, not the workshop or the host, so please send a donation to the site. If you gave it to me I would probably forget to pass it on.

    Re: March 25 Finishing Workshop Student list

    Hey all,

    With deep regrets I have to pull out this weekend. My wife and I got a free weekend stay at a B&B at Colonial Williamsburg because a friend had to cancel her trip at the last minute, and it's too good to pass up. I'll be sure to take lots of pictures in the cabinetry shop and post them back here! I hope someone else can grab my spot at Phil's workshop... it promises to be great.

    Re: March 25 Finishing Workshop Student list

    I regret to say that I will have to work tomorrow and miss another of Phil's workshops!

    So, for someone, this is going to be a GREAT deal as I am still going to make the donation and someone is going to get a finishing workshop and what I will tell you in advance is usually a wonderful lunch!

    Please contact Phil to be chosen.

    Re: March 25 Finishing Workshop Student list

    Big thanks to Phil for hosting and putting on a great workshop. I sprayed lacquer for the first time today. I have only sprayed shellac in the past. I see myself playing with some lacquer in the future.



    Dirk,
    What exactly did you have in your Earlex that we sprayed on the chair? I remember you saying it was from Sherwin Williams.
