Speakers: Scott Grove, Furniture Designer:


This class is a must for professionals and beginners alike who are making curved tables, inlays and joinery. This easy-to-understand demonstration shows you how to apply a hardwood edge and a variety of inlays to a curved table edge.

It’s for anyone who wants to take their furniture to the next level; the objective is to add an incredible range of exciting curved edges, joinery and inlay possibilities for woodworkers.  Scott will reveal a simple system by using a set of large offset template guides on a router, and when used properly, accurately mates a hardwood seam to any curve.  

The process will be clearly explained with a variety of real-time demonstrations, photos, drawings and renderings to illustrate each step along the way.  Fine inlays in various materials made from wood, shell, metal, and glow-in-the-dark composite will be shown to add just the right detail to your project. The end of the class handout reviews step-by-step instructions and illustrations.  

At the end of the class, Scott will also be available to answer questions and sign his book, Hardwood Edging and Inlay for Curved Tables.  A book will be a door prize for one lucky attendee.
