While I was at the SWAT woodturning symposium this year, I was asked whether or not a springform style cake pan mold would work for resin casting a turning blank in. I wasn’t sure so I decided to give it a shot, and I was surprised by the result!
In addition to the metal cake pan, I also ran across a silicone springform style mold, and I tried that out too. I love experiments!!
I picked the molds up on Amazon, I’ve included my affiliate links to the molds I used as well as a couple others I found that might be worth investigating (click picture below.) Make sure you watch the video before diving into a metal one though.

I’m really looking forward to seeing how that aluminum shavings blank turns out! Question is what to make with it… Hmmmm?
