Veneering and laminating

Posted by on Aug 5, 1916 in Advanced Furniture Courses, Courses | No Comments

Five days.

This course can open up new areas of furniture making for you. Perhaps you are getting a little bored with straight lines and the timbers available form the local wood yard. Being able to create curves and use veneers will increase tremendously the range of furniture you can make and the surface decoration you can use. Once you have been on the veneering and lamination course your only limitation will be your imagination!

Course description  Mastering the skills of veneering and laminating greatly extends the design possibilities available to the furniture maker. The advent of relatively cheap vacuum press systems has brought these techniques within the range of the hobby furniture make, and this course is designed to give the skills to tackle this useful technique.

Exploration of these techniques will be based around the making of a curved stool similar to that pictured above. The pictured stool is in walnut and masur birch. The course piece will be in cherry and poplar burr, there is scope for varying veneers used, but this may have material cost implications. In cherry and poplar burr the material cost is £50.
