Description

Open to new and advanced woodworkers, this course is an introduction to sculpting hardwood using tools and techniques involved in fine furniture making. Guided by Lauren Verdugo from The Maloof Foundation, you will learn how to design your own template as a guide for removing material, and discover the sculpting potential of rasps and files. Whether you want to take your furniture to the next level or learn how to make a fun gift for your family and friends, this class will teach you how to turn a block of wood into a hand-sculpted brush in one day.

All tools and materials are included. Class is limited to eight students.
