Do you want to add some pizzazz to a project, but don’t have a lot of time?
While there are many ways to add decorative details, many can take almost as long as building the entire project. However, Michael Fortune is here with a great one-day class to show us how to use a few tools and jigs to create beautiful, speedy inlays.
The process is both simple and fast, and the results look terrific!
Michael will guide you step-by-step through the process of making and using jigs to easily create decorative leaf-like additions to any woodworking project, from table tops, doors, and chairs, to serving trays and jewelry boxes.
By using jigs to cut veneer pieces in stacks, rather than one at a time, you’ll speed up your entire process — and you can use the same jigs to inset solid wood shapes into surfaces like trays, tables, or cabinet tops.
We’ll also learn how to make and use a grooving tool to slit solid wood, which can then receive an inlay. And Michael will demonstrate decorative edge details, giving you even more options.
In addition to these great demonstrations, you’ll be able to experiment with using the custom jigs to add interesting details to surfaces, and will learn how to easily reproduce these helpful tools in your own shop.
By the end of the day, you’ll have a great new understanding of inlay techniques, and an arsenal of options to add visual interest — quickly.
