How to Bend Trim, Moldings & Handrails with Gary Striegler October 1 - 2, 2022

about this workshop

The ability to make curved trim for cabinets, furniture and in the trim world is like having a PHD in woodworking. If you have ever looked at a piece of curved trim and wondered, “How did they do that” this is the class for you. This class will break down the challenge of working with curved trim into three parts: making a curved blank, profiling the blank and installing the finished piece. Students will work in three groups to build a curved top paneled niche, a project that will give you the opportunity to make and install all types of curved trim. Each student will also work on their own curved trim project, a curved top mirror frame. This class will take you from asking “How did they do that” to saying “I can do that”!!
