Solid countertop material makes for excellent material for turning bowls and other projects on a lathe, but it’s important that you be sure to properly glue multiple layers of the material together before you start turning. The key is using the right glue. George Vondriska teaches you how to use CA glue from Titebond to create a tight, seamless seal when gluing countertop material that will last forever.

    I’m impressed with the clamps you use in this and other videos. Can you tell me more about them?

    Also, do you have other info on the website regarding mounting and turning this counter top material?

      Hey Ed,
      The clamps are Jorgensen Gear Clamps http://www.ponytools.com/index… If you do an internet search you’ll find them at a variety of retailers.

      You can watch this video http://local.wordpress/video/003… to get a little more info on the turning process. I mount the blank by gluing a hardwood board to the countertop material, using CA glue. I bore a hole in the hardwood that accepts the jaws of my chuck. You can cut the hardwood off later.

      Thanks,
      George

    Thanks Ed, Very interesting. Do you use the same wood turning tools for this solid counter top material?

      Thank you for your comment. In response to your question, Tool steel chisels will dull very quickly. High speed steel tools would be better. Carbide tipped chisels would be best.
