“Working with castings has become such a fun and exciting way to enhance any woodworking experience.”

Creative people are discovering the fun in using resin to make turning blanks, item encapsulations, bowls, river tables and more. To meet their project needs, Woodcraft continues to expand its line of resins and related products – and to encourage these resin artists Woodcraft will be sponsoring a contest in March.
“Woodcraft has assembled an extensive line of urethane and epoxy resins, along with colorants, molds and other products to support resin casting artists,” Woodcraft President and CEO Jack Bigger said. “Working with castings has become such a fun and exciting way to enhance any woodworking experience.”
According to Product Development Manager Ben Bice, the new WoodRiver® Silicone Casting Molds and the 365CW Pressure Pot make Woodcraft the go-to source for customers who have embraced resin casting and deep pour epoxy in increasing numbers.
“The main reason we added our own line of resin molds was to control the quality and design,” Bice explained. “We improved the design to make the molds more user-friendly by adding pre-rounded corners for easier removal and turning. Silicone was chosen because it is reusable and long lasting if cared for properly.”
Molds are available to make blanks for turning pens, rings, bottle stoppers, utensil handles and other small items, as well as blanks to make knife scales.
For larger resin projects, especially ones that include wood or other materials, pressure is often needed to create a tight, bubble-free casting. To offer customers a high quality product for applying pressure, Bice said, “Woodcraft reached out to California Air Tools. The vendor designed and built the 365CW Pressure Pot for resin casting exclusively for Woodcraft. It can accommodate almost any casting project.”
