Cutting & Working with Your Own Veneers with Tim Coleman
Shop-sawn veneer offers many design and construction possibilities that the thinner commercial veneer cannot. Learn how to make your own veneer using the bandsaw. Do you have a board with incredible figure- and wish you had enough to build something with it? What about stretching that board by cutting it into consecutive leaves of 1/16th inch veneer?
In this weekend hands-on class students will learn how to set up the bandsaw to cut accurate veneers. As importantly, Tim will introduce participants to the different veneer substrates and edge banding techniques along with the advantages and disadvantages of each. Adhesives play a big part in working with veneers, so this will be covered, along with the different ways of sequencing sheets of veneer to create dramatic effects and design. You can’t learn effectively by just watching a series of demos- so students will practice the techniques by making a tray- or a wall hanging- of their own design. Those of you who took Tim’s earlier class on surface ornamentation could combine effects for an over the top panel!
Tim Coleman works out of his shop in Shelburne, Massachusetts and produces unique and striking custom furniture for clients and exhibition. In this class you will develop the skills- and the ideas for different designs that you can begin applying to your next project.
The sky is the limit so join furniture maker, Tim Coleman for this unique class and learn how to use thick veneer to create decorative effects for furniture, boxes, picture or mirror frames.
