February 10 ~11, 2018 Saturday & Sunday
Instructor: Matt Bickford
Tuition: $350.00 Plus Materials
Stop making compromises with your router. Stop getting close to the moulding profiles you want. Learn how to use some of the most abundant moulding planes of the past to get the exact detail you are after.
Hollows and rounds do not make specific profiles. They make specific arcs. Learn to transform these various arcs into scores of varying profiles.
From layout to execution, this weekend class will focus on creating various moldings with these extraordinarily versatile planes. The class will start off with maintaining the cutting edge. We will then move to laying-out and ultimately sticking (planing) several moldings that will range from simple coves and ovolos through ogees, cymas and various combinations.
The class will focus on hollows and rounds sized 6 and 10 along with a rabbet plane. Students will have the opportunity to bring their own performing planes or they can use newly made planes by M. S. Bickford, planemaker. Students will also have the opportunity to use a larger range of planes.
Each student will leave with the moulding for a picture frame and the ability to transfer mouldings he or she sees in person or print into wood and onto their project.
