This course is for anyone who wants to take their furniture to the next level. The class project is to design and create an organic-form tabletop with an extreme French-curved hardwood edge and “over the top” fine inlays. The objective is to add an incredible range of exciting curved edges and fine inlay possibilities for anyone who works with wood. By using template guides and off set patterns, student will master curved joinery and overcome all its challenges. “You don’t know where the line is until you cross it.” is Scott’s mantra, and experimentation is encouraged. Each day Scott will discuss process, material selection, and alternatives (lots of them) for choosing the right technique and tool for each task, followed by plenty of hands-on practice. Students will come away with a better understanding of how to embellish their work and take it over the EDGE. Scott is an enthusiastic and high-energy craftsman and a great teacher—be prepared to push the limits.
