Inlay Techniques In The Greene & Greene Style With William Ng
4/10/17 — 4/14/17
In this class we will be covering basic inlay techniques from design, materials, cutting, fitting, gluing up, to finishing. We’ll proceed with more advanced techniques used in some of the Greene & Greene furniture. We will be dealing with materials such as shells, silver, brass, wood, plastic, and any material that we can cut, which is almost endless. The main tool for the class will be a four inch jeweler fret saw. Proper cutting technique will be emphasized. There will be several projects for the class, with emphasis on making your own custom tools that will help in shaping and inlaying silver by grinding, shaping, and sharpening. We will also learn to texturize, shape, and color wood with a rubbing technique that will give your inlay an aged antique look. This class will definitely give your woodworking a new dimension.
