Basic Veneering with Brian Byrne May 21-22, 2022
The ability to work with veneer is a skill well worth developing; it opens up a whole new world of design freedom. In this weekend workshop, Brian will discuss how to handle veneer and ways to cut, tape, press, and sand the final project. Students will learn how to slip, book, four-way, and radial match veneers. On the second day, students will be introduced to parquetry techniques and allowed to incorporate geometric shapes into their work. By the end of the weekend, each student will have pressed up many examples to take home and turn into a special piece of furniture or wall hanging. Veneer work is simple, creative and fun. If you’ve ever wanted to learn the craft of veneering, this would be a great place to start.
