Resawn Veneered Boxes with a Twist with Adrian Ferrazzutti (Tues to Sat) May 31 - June 4, 2022

about this workshop

This class will be based on the shop sawn veneer technique that Adrian uses to make his decorative veneered Ferrazzutti Boxes that were featured in the FWW Video “Veneered Boxes with a Twist”. Students will mill and glue up multiple species of wood into a striped block to be resawn into veneers and then cut into geometric shapes to create striking graphic designs of their own. Students will also learn to saw their own veneer from solid stock to be used for the interior of their boxes. The veneered patterns will be glued to plywood using a vacuum press after which the many steps of constructing the box will begin. Students will cut joinery, fit the top and learn how control waterfall veneer patterns or grain from the top to all sides of the box. Hardwood edging will be fit and glued around all the corners using Ebony or Holly. High quality hinges and lock hardware will be thoroughly demonstrated so each student can inlay their hardware with total precision. This will be an action pack class filled with live demonstrations by Adrian, while still giving lots of working time to complete the box at MASW.
