About TurningWood.com

My name is Steve Worcester, and my studio is in Plano,TX.

While I do all sorts of woodturning, I have been woodturning since 1994 and have gone through many phases. I did square turning and wrote several articles on my techniques. After taking a class from David Ellsworth and advisories from Trent Bosch, hollow turning has been a major direction and force of my work.

Abralon – (P GRIT grading system) foam backed disks!

Great for high luster on exotics, man made materials and anywhere a super fine finish is required. (Sand your lacquer before buffing!)

Combines benefits of abrasive cloth and non-woven products. Constructed with a fabric face, foam center, and a grip backing. Abrasive grains are bonded evenly to the fabric face. Openings in the fabric allow water, solvent and air to flow freely around the abrasive. Works especially well when sanding contoured surfaces, corners and sharp edges. Open cell design holds large amounts of water or solvent for lubrication and cooling. Foam center also provides for even surface pressure that helps eliminate finger marks when hand sanding.

These disks are available in 2″ and 3″ sizes 360, 500, 1000, 2000, 4000 Grits

Abranet Sanding Screen

Available in 80-1000 Grit

An aluminum oxide bonded to a polyamide fabric mesh. It is a grip disk that consists of a flat, reticular disc with thousands of holes. For the woodturner this means superior anti-clogging properties on bare wood, and awesome for dry sanding out a film finish; waterborne or solvent based! Abranet has a much longer lifetime and retains its original sanding performance much longer than traditional abrasives. This means that sanding can be carried out more quickly and more effectively. Extended product life requires less use of materials. This stuff rocks the planet! You can blow out the build up with air and hit the crepe pad to clean. You will wear the grit off before you can clog the stuff too much to use. I recommend and interface pad so you don’t wear out the hook and loop.
These disks are available in 2” and 3” packages of 10, and are stamped with the grit number on the back.
