Traditional Veneering and Cross-banding Techniques with Phil Lowe

drawer_front_corey_martin.jpgThe complexities of many Federal style furniture pieces demanded the extensive use of veneers as the only practical method of dealing with the inevitable “wood movement” while allowing the use of precious woods to cover large surfaces. Inlays utilizing different patterned bandings where then used as decoration, but more importantly, to protect the delicate edges of the veneers used. We are pleased to have Phil Lowe, one of this country’s leading experts on 18th & 19th century furniture styles and techniques, back to teach this exciting and informative class. Phil will teach techniques for creating designs with the veneers along with methods to make various decorative bandings. Veneering a curved surface will be explored along with hammer veneering techniques and the many advantages of using hide glue. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from one of this country's leading authorities on traditional furniture designs and techniques. Tuition: $245.00 (plus materials)
