This is a sophisticated looking edge detail that looks more difficult to do than it is--once you know the tricks. It can be incorporated into almost any cabinet or table design and can frame and beautifully compliment a burled veneered top or accent a solid wood top or cabinet. When applying radial veneer to a waterfall on a curve, the sections of veneer are no longer wedge shaped but actually have a serpentine shaped edge. This class will show you how to make a jig to ensure the segments of veneer fit together flawlessly. Veneer where it meets an edge is very fragile and prone to chipping; with this method all edges are first underplayed with solid wood. Waterfall edges from an inch wide to 8 inches will be demonstrated.

Key Points:

Create large and small waterfall edge details in veneer and solid wood
Apply solid wood underlay for veneered waterfall edges
Cut radial veneer segments
Apply perfect clamp pressure on solid wood edging and then apply veneer to serpentine curved surfaces
Join waterfall edge details where they meet at corners
Form veneer to the compound surface of a curved waterfall edge

There is a $45 annual registration fee that will be added to your the total amount of the class if this is the first class you are registering for this season.
