Why spend hours laboring over a one-of-a-kind piece of woodworking only to add a $2 piece of hardware that’s just like the hardware that your neighbor has on his kitchen cabinet? This special session is dedicated to mold making, reproduction and cold metal bronze casting. Students will learn how to create or reproduce just about any form and texture like a found object such as a pine cone, a finely carved picture frame, a hand-sculpted door pull or a thumb. This process embellishes any work with unique details and avoids chain-store-bought cabinet pulls or ornamentation. Adding these features in bronze can be the perfect icing on the cake; no special equipment is required and casting is easier than baking that cake. Each student will create a mold and bronze element. Scott will expand on and demonstrate techniques shared in his Fine Woodworking “Master Class” article.
