Adding inlay to your woodworking project can elevate your work from good to spectacular. This course explores inlay techniques as applied to woodturning, covering both dazzling accents and an introduction to creating inlaid imagery. Students will learn how to use minerals, shells, metals, guitar purfling, and paper to create dazzling effects. Students will also learn how to use dyes, airbrushing, sealers, and finishes in subtle layered topcoats to further enhance these inlay designs. This is a busy class – light on long-winded lectures while instead focused on the students many hands-on projects. Students can expect to complete the inlay of seven small projects with additional time for each to pursue two individual projects with Stephen’s oversight. Woodturning skills are minimal for this class so complete beginners are welcome. Students who take this class are encouraged to also take the following weekend class on “Adding Translucent Rims to Woodturnings,” thereby covering all the inlay topics Stephen teaches. Stephen states “This is the most exciting and creative class I have ever taught and MASW has the perfect facility and assistants for it.”
