Finishing your Chip Carvings (and Relief Carvings)

Instructor: Bill Johnson
The Instructor, before being introduced to Chip Carving some 18 years ago, spent 25-30 years as a serious hobby woodworker. During that time, he focused much of his energy on the finishing phase of creating everything from knick-knacks to fine furniture. Later, he found that most of what he had learned during those years, also applies to the Chip Carved pieces he produces today, including the non-traditional "Sculptural Chip Carvings."

Time: 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
Cost: $100
Experience Level: ALL
Max # of Students: 12
Tools/materials required: Students are encouraged to bring examples of unfinished and finished work, including (especially) carvings that he or she are interested in applying finish to during class. Note: most finishing requires several days from start to finish, so please do not plan on arriving with an unfinished piece and expect to leave with all stages completed. Visit www.CarolinaMountainReefs.com prior to the class and make note of specific questions related the pieces and their finishes, seen there.

Class Description, Info, or Special Instructions:
This class is being offered in response to frequent requests from Chip Carvers, asking, "How do you get your finishes to come out that way?". Sometimes the answer is a question, "How do you go about finishing your pieces?" Commonly, the answer to that question is something like, "I use sanding sealer, but the stain is blotchy", or "I brush on polyurethane", and so on.

The finish, or at least, planning for the finish, starts much earlier. This class will focus on what leads up to a great finish, as well as what is done during that stage, we generally refer to as "Finishing". We'll even talk about a term common among woodworkers - "Finishing the Finish".

Many of the basic building blocks are the same in other styles of carving, and in woodworking. Attendees don't have to be Chip Carvers to benefit from this class.

Alan Wasserman Bio:
I am a retired trial attorney of 36 years. My passion and dedication to my practice was transferred when I discovered woodturning. 70 hour work weeks were common place when I was a trial lawyer. Now, my woodturning has far surpassed that to become my obsession in life, one step behind my family. I have sought out and trained with the masters of woodturning, internationally from Australia to Ireland and in the U.S. from Washington State to PA. My studies and work have been influenced and nurtured by the master turners. From this extensive study, and long hours in the studio, I have put together the pieces of the puzzle that work. The results are creations that look great and will last for generations.
