Who: Mark Tindley
What: Superglue! Tips and tricks from a professional woodworker.
When: July 9, 2019 at 7:00 pm
This is planned as an entertaining and educational evening with Mark Tindley, professional woodworker and superglue addict. Mark plans to spend the evening bombarding us with little tips, tricks and hands on demonstrations. He promises us that at least 50% of them will be about superglue! Avoiding clamping, fixing mistakes, making jigs, template routing, inlay work - all with Superglue. We will also learn about the importance of viscosity, the joy of capillary action and the use of accelerators.
Every woodworker has a few clever tricks up their sleeve that they invented or picked up along their woodworking journey. Mark has many more than he can fit into one evening and intends to cover a lot of ground. He hopes that all skill levels will be able to glean something useful from the talk.
Mark is the current Guild Chair of the Sonoma County Woodworker's Association. He trained in Cabinet Making, Machine Woodworking and Fine Woodworking in London, England. He has worked for and with many furniture makers in London and then the Bay Area - (all of whom needed to use more Superglue!) - before setting up Mark Tindley Woodworking in 2014. He is a licensed specialty contractor for cabinetry, finish carpentry and millwork. His professional work includes a large variety of cabinetry, furniture and other custom woodworking projects. Right now he is building a pair of 24 feet wide driveway gates in Western Red Cedar.
This will be the 3rd talk Mark has given to the association. Some of you will remember the other two about copying a Stradivarius Violin and how to build tables in the Greene and Greene style.
Many will remember Mark's Dovetail Bench entry in our 2018 Artistry in Wood show.
