If you always wanted to try carving linenfold panels are a great place to start. Linenfold date back to Elizabethan and Tudor times and were called lignum undulatum, Latin for undulating wood. Historians applied the name linenfold in the Nineteenth Century.
In this hands-on two-day workshop, you will learn to plane and carve one of these eye-appealing panels that will add grandeur to a cabinet or walls. We will use sassafras which is beautiful and easy to plane or carve. The wavy cloth effect is achieved with hollow and round planes. The carving is only at the top and bottom of the panel and creates the illusion of folded linen. The techniques are simple, straightforward and easy to learn. Only a few gouges are required. If you lack hollow and round planes we have loaners for the course at no additional fee.
If you are here for the Handtool Joinery Class ending on Friday, you can stay and add this detail to the door. You can make a panel for the door of your cabinet if your are taking the Machine Tool Course in August.
