09 Sep Turn Wood into Metal!
MakeItMetal is based in Ontario and uses metal veneer coating on a variety of surfaces such as wood and MDF to create the look, texture, and feel, of real metal. The process makes it possible to coat turned forms and architectural elements. Sheet stock is available, too, and it can be worked with standard woodworking tools. Metal coating gives a woodshop some interesting design capabilities, and it’s much more cost effective and environmentally responsible than using traditional sheet metal or metal laminates, plating, or casting. It can be used on both interior and exterior surfaces. In addition to doing the coating at their facility, the company is now offering both in-person and virtual training for woodworkers. The staff can arrange for someone to come to your facility, or have you go to the fully equipped St. Catharines location to teach you about the product and the process, and how to do it yourself. You can also sign up for virtual training, which includes a kit with all the basics.
