January Meeting: Ebonizing Wood with Richard Tendick

Date: January 18th, 2011
Time: 6:45

Did you ever have a need for a dark piece of wood such as ebony but can't get your hands on any that is to your liking or within your budget? Our January meeting will feature our very own Richard Tendick as he shares techniques and ideas related to ebonizing wood. He will demonstrate his method and some of the applications.

Richard is a valued member of the MN Woodworkers Guild Board of Directors and is the organizer of the annual Northern Woods Exhibition. You may remember his 2008 Entry, Cryptex, which was the recipient of the Burton and Ruth Elvig award.
