Interesting. I had a lot of voids in the resin, linen and metal shavings blanks I made. Luckily because of the brass shavings in one and the aluminum shavings in the other two I was able to easily fill the voids with CA and shavings and it blended perfectly with the blanks. I'd like to try making some more blanks eventually. Do you mind sharing what resin you used, it looks fantastic. I used fiberglass resin on the first and Castin craft on the other two. The Castin craft was easier to turn but no less smelly. If you'd rather not share your secrets I completely understand. Either way Happy turning your work is very inspirational.
