Stringing & Bellflowers
Jan. 20 ~21, 2018 9:00 AM ~ 5:00 PM
Instructor: Freddy Roman
Federal furniture was customarily embellished with stringing, bandings, bellflowers and fans. In this seminar the student will learn how to make simple tools especially designed to inlay stringing into a tapered leg. Simple bandings will be glued up and sawn and inlayed into the leg as a cuff. Bellflowers and a fan will be cut from veneers and appropriately inlayed into solid stock. The age old technique of sand shading will also be explored, leaving the student with an increased awareness in the evolution of furniture ornamentation.
