The Next Level of Working with Veneer with Darryl Keil-
all about Veneer, Vacuum Presses and Adhesives
The ability to work with veneers and incorporate them into your woodworking projects offers creative design options not possible with solid wood alone. If you want to expand your woodworking skills and creativity then this class will take you to the next level. In this two day hands on class with nationally known veneer expert, Darryl Keil students will explore the techniques and tools of veneering through creating a 12 way radial matched table top. Darryl is one of this country’s innovators with working with vacuum presses. Because vacuum presses open up a whole level of advanced veneering techniques a portion of this class will be devoted to exploring the possibilities using a vacuum press- not only for veneer work but also as a creative solution to complex clamping problems.
Creating curved panels, veneering curves, shaped part as well as other options will be discussed and demonstrated. We will be using the vacuum bag-not only with a platen but for free forming curved work without a platen! Darryl Keil began making furniture in 1976 after attending the Portland School of Art, and was a pioneer in the application of vacuum pressing technology to the woodworking industry. As a leading expert on veneer work he serves as a technical consultant to furniture manufacturing facilities across the country. His company, Vacuum Pressing Systems, operates out of Brunswick, ME.
