Decorative Details with Garrett Hack 2.0

     Date: June 29 & 30, 2019
     Tuition and Material Fee: $450 (plus HST)



   Let’s assume you know how to make a scratchstock, can make a clean inlaid line (a string inlay), and have some experience with inlaying pieces into a surface. Hopefully you have taken DETAILS 101, but if not we can do a quick refresher before we explore and expand on these basic techniques.

  We can try some curves (against a pattern), some new ways to highlight an edge with a diagonal or solid wood inlay, use bone, shell, and metals, and create some fans or other shapes to inlay. We will do a lot with panels inlayed at the top of a leg or into a tabletop, since they are particularly good places to creatively combine different materials. And we could make some complex bandings. There is so much to explore, what are you are curious about? 
  We will work almost entirely by hand, so naturally sharpening, tuning, and using hand tools will be an important emphasis. We will make small sample boards to practice designing and using these decorative techniques. Bring along any interesting materials you would like to use, and I’ll have some on hand too.
