Resin Cast Wood Blanks: By a wide margin, resin cast wood blanks are our #1 seller and the most popular choice among women who wear bangles. The process begins by carefully selecting and cutting interesting burl wood that is cracked, worm eaten, super punky, or cut from the burl cap and then resin pressure-cast.  The blanks are cast at 45 psi, post cured at 200F, lathe turned to reveal wood surfaces, vacuum stabilized in MMA two-part resin, and cured once again at 200F.  The blanks are then final turned and coated with lacquer. Since each blank is unique, they are pictured individually below.  The blank in the picture is the blank you will receive.  The blanks are priced based on the level of effort required to produce, and the uniqueness of the blank.  Recommended for the bangle maker looking to take their art to the next level. Limited supply.
