Advanced Marquetry - 3 Days
2023 dates to be announced.
- 590 US dollars$590
- Two Rock School of Woodworking
Continuing with techniques not covered in the first class, students will have the time to work on a larger more elaborate project. We will go in depth into techniques that are only mentioned briefly in the beginning class – like breaking up large designs into manageable sections, inserting tiny pieces, dealing with shrinkage after shading and inlaying into the center of a panel that cannot be reached by the limited throat on your saw. We’ll also cover veneering tapes and adhesives, look at the vacuum veneer press in more detail and show you how to cut your own veneers on a bandsaw. After that those offcuts you have been saving will suddenly seem like treasure! You will be able to bring anything you are currently working on for advice and progress or a drawing of the project you would like to get started. We will provide all the tools you will need to use, along with a wide variety of veneers in many textures and colors. Students taking this class must first have completed our “Beginning marquetry” course.
If you need to cancel this course please contact us as soon as possible so that your place can be offered to another participant.
