The objective of this course is to add an incredible range of exciting possibilities for woodworkers. The class project will be designing and creating an organic form tabletop with a veneered face, inlay detailing, and French curved hardwood edge. A focus on burl veneers, alternative pattern matching and inlays will be explored. Selection, methods of flattening, seaming and all sorts of repair techniques will be covered. Scott will reveal his "super secret" wavy contour seam that will blow everyone away. Advanced seaming, inlay and patterns will be explored including his award-winning spiral match. Each day Scott will discuss the process of developing the design, material selection and alternatives (lots of them) for choosing the right technique and tool for each task. Every day there will be a series of demonstrations and lectures followed by lots of hands-on practice. This workshop is for anyone wanting to take their furniture to the next level and push their limits. You will come away with a better understanding of how to embellish your work and expand your designs and techniques. "You don't know where the edge is until you cross it." Experimentation will be encouraged. Scott is an enthusiastic and high-energy craftsman and a great teacher--be prepared to push your limits.
