Simple, fast, and easy are adjectives rarely used to describe woodworking, but the techniques that students learn throughout this weekend are just that. During this workshop Michael will demonstrate a wide variety of detail techniques that can be incorporated into your furniture to enhance and compliment the overall design. How to design and add decorative feet to tables, chairs, and cabinets will be included, as will several techniques to inlay contrasting woods, precious metals, and colored epoxies. Students will be encouraged to try each of the techniques with the specialized hand tools that everyone will make during the class. Determining the best adhesives for detail work and what finishes can be applied will also be covered. Students will come away from this class with a bag of tricks that can be used in endless variations of simple embellishments that will help your work make a statement.
