Unique & Creative Surfaces with Tim Coleman

 

Coleman Carved Table 640Join nationally known furniture maker, Tim Coleman for this fascinating look into various techniques to create visually exciting textures and patterns to furniture surfaces. In this class with Tim students will explore two primary techniques to embellish surfaces with patterns and texture using a few simple tools and a scroll saw. 

Steel stamps are commonly used to emboss leather, but they can also be used on wood.  In this two day class you will learn how to use a V carving tool to make pattern outlines, and steel stamps to create texture. Try out traditional letter and number stamps and also learn to make your own shapes and symbols from steel rod stock. Stamping is easy to learn and allows you to work quickly and spontaneously. You will also learn techniques to add color to the patterns to make them really stand out. Coleman Starbox detail 640

In the second part of the class you will learn how to cut shapes and patterns piercing through thick veneer pieces and then prepare them to laminate onto a contrasting layer of wood or veneer. You will get practice on the scroll saw and, most important, you will learn techniques for gluing down the cut pieces to achieve a clean result with very little glue squeeze out. It’s surprising how much depth can be achieved with material as thin as 1/16th inch, and effects can range from subtle to wild depending on wood and pattern selection. Tim Coleman works out of his shop in Shelbourne, Massachusetts and produces some truly unique and striking custom furniture for clients. In this class you can come with your own pattern ideas or look into Tim’s catalogue of ideas for inspiration. Whatever you do you will be sure to bring away some new skills and ideas that you can apply to your next projects. Sign up today- Space is limited.Coleman Possibilities640
