In the days before plaster, beaverboard, and sheetrock, quality houses were wood-paneled. One of the most gorgeous forms of paneling was linenfold — an especially impressive form of carving that is also used in furniture. The process is surprisingly simple, requiring nothing more than a few simple hand tools and easily made templates. Almost infinitely variable in design, houses and furniture can often be exactly dated by the precise style of linenfold employed. The process remains equally valid as a stunning ingredient in contemporary furniture. Graham will show students how to make templates, develop the folds, plane the undulations, and carve the over-cut and under-cut ends that result in an apparently impossible plastic three-dimensionality of this stunning and absorbing technique. This will be a hands-on class.
