February Meeting - Thinking Outside the Can

Jay Cash

 Tuesday February 16th 2016, 7:00 PM

Many of you will remember the presentation Jay Cash gave to our Association in November of 2014. Many of you requested that we have him back to follow on what he talked about and get into details on the exact finishing process he has developed. Jay has graciously agreed to join us again in February. 

No matter how good you are at finishing I am sure you will leave this meeting with an even better understanding of the finishing process. 

Jay will present a great “how to” program on many aspects of finishing for wood working projects. His main emphasis will be the actual finishing process he has developed over his more than 35 years of woodworking and finishing. He will begin with a quick summary of his last presentation included wood selection and matching finishes to the type of wood, sealing and conditioning, and using dyes and pigmented colors. He also discussed recipes for desired wood colors and matching fillers to grain. He will then cover the finishing process in detail. 

The program will have a lot of useful, practical information. Visitors with an interest in woodworking are welcome. 

Many of you met Jay in November of 2014. Some of you will may remember Jay from his days working at Klingspor, and others may have attended one of the classes he taught on finishing at Klingspor. 

Jay knows more about finishing in his little finger than some of us know, well, me anyway, in our entire body.

Jay is now working for Finish Pros of Raleigh. http://www.finishpros.com Finish Pros specialize in furniture restoration and upholstery where you not only have to know how to finish new furniture, but you must be able to match the finishes of 100+ years ago.

Come and be entertained and learn.
