  • Amazing, beautiful, relaxing video for the true craftsman in you. Enjoy!

    I took my tax stuff in yesterday afternoon and my accountant, who is also a dear friend, began asking me about my home shop and the business I used to run. She then told me about her Ex who she remains close to as a friend, and sent me a video about his shop and work. I just watched this video and knew immediately that you guys would appreciate it.

    The man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman.
    But the man who works with his hands, his brain, and his heart is an artist.

    Very good video. Thank you.

    Does anybody know what adhesive and accelerator he uses? I've never used such combo, but a few days ago I had an opportunity to see a German product like this.

        Another thanks for posting. Absolutely stunning craftsmanship. The man definitely knows the medium he's working with.

          He said right in the video that it was CA glue. From my model airplane building I can see that he's using a thicker "gap filling" version that doesn't run. From the look of the dispenser bottle he used he's buying it in larger bulk containers and dispensing it into a handier to use bottle.

          Pretty much all the companies that sell CA also sell a companion accelerator. I don't know which brand name is signified by the white and blue can. But the larger size of the can and the lot number information on it suggests a more commercial line such as Loctite's industrial adhesive lineup. The size of that can of accelerator would also support the idea that he buys his CA glue in larger containers such as would come in that sort of line.

          For the most part CA is CA and the accelerator is pretty standard as well. If you only want a little of it you can find the thicker formula and the accelerator in smaller size pump spray bottles at any hobby shop and probably most hardware stores.

            Thank you BCRider.

            Yes, I understand this is a CA glue. However, CA glues are not equal. Setting time and, as you mentioned, consistency vary greatly. My question was about this particular glue or similar ones: their names is what I want to know. They must allow ample working time (unlike Crazy Glue or other instant bond CAs) and proper consistency.

            But thank you anyway.

              But, he certainly could use some pointers on band saw safety - sheesh!

                  I was more curious about the 'super glue' that he applies with the bottle and smooths with his finger? My experience w super glue and fingers does not mirror his experience

                    True. I noticed it too.

                      Glad you guys liked it.

                      Here is his website address. I was surprised by how much he got for these bowls, but after a bit of reflection .... I wasn't.

                          There is a product called 2P-10 by FastCap that we use that will do that. Great stuff. Cheap too when to figure in the quantity you can get if you compare it to buying CA in little tubes.

                            I'll check on it. Thank you for the pointer, Darryl.

                              That was great, thanks for posting it.

                              I would like to know where he gets all his exotic wood from????

                              Also that watered down super glue that he spread over the bowl while it was spinning. It makes like a plastic film finish.

                              I didn't see him use any Elmers wood working glue. Also did he have different colored glues??

                              Side note........... I wonder if he wears a dust mask when not on camera. Breathing in the dust from some of those hard woods is not healthy.

                              JL..............
