Veneering & Laminating course – Peter Sefton furniture school

This course was an exceptional course preparing us to veneer and laminate professionally going forward in our workshops.

The course covered the history and cutting techniques of veneers, hand selecting veneers, adhesives, veneering techniques, laminating and forming and steam bending. We put all of the theory into practise as you can see below.

We crafted a dinner tray from bur maple, black walnut and rippled sycamore veneers and the edging and laminated handles were made from black walnut. A stunning piece. I would highly recommend the course.

Please get in touch if you need any advice or need a similar piece commissioned – opwoodcraft@gmail.com.
