Come and spend a jam packed five days studying veneer with Tim Coleman. Tim is a talented veneer artist as well as an accomplished furniture maker and a regular contributor to Fine Woodworking magazine.
The use of veneer goes back nearly 4,000 years as early forms of it were found in the tombs of Egyptian pharaohs. Veneered surfaces are every bit as durable and attractive as solid wood, and in many situations veneering offers considerable advantages over solid wood construction because of the dimensional stability of the surfaces. Veneering also offers a way to use exotic wood species that is much less demanding on hardwood resources than solid wood construction.
If you’ve been wanting to tackle a wood veneering project, but haven’t been sure how to get started, or you’ve been working with veneer for a while and would like to explore new techniques, this is the right class for you.
You will work in a focused, friendly environment and leave with a solid understanding of veneer basics. For those with some existing knowledge of veneer work, you can expand your skills by learning how to create patterned surfaces including the use of parquetry and marquetry.
