Veneering ‘Make a Tray’ with Steambent Handle Weekend
This weekend we were pleased to welcome four students to our veneering course, with some of the students returning to the school for more tuition following our Box Making course in October.
Over the course of two days, the students learnt a number of new skills in veneering. They were taught about the selection of veneer and were able to make their own choices from our huge stock of veneer for the designs of their tray.
Our tutor Maria covered veneering topics like book matching and slip matching, as well as various methods of pressing and jointing veneer. The tuition also covered vacuum press principles, types of press and use of equipment.
Techniques like sand scorching and steambending were also taught.
We received some incredibly kind feedback from the course and we are really pleased that the students found it a productive and enjoyable weekend. And they were all really pleased with their trays! More weekend courses coming soon, please check the website for further details.
