Creating Classic Inlay Furniture Elements - Shell Paterae
Ronnie Young is one of the most outstanding period furniture artists of our time. His beautiful work and teaching prowess made him a winner of The Society of American Period Furnituremaker's Cartouche Award. Ronnie has built in excess of two hundred pieces of furniture in his distinguished career. Using his engineering background, he frequently draws the plans he builds, faithfully capturing each detail of the original piece. He constructs his own paterae, inlay, fretwork and moldings and often mills and dries the lumber for his projects.
The box shown in the gallery is a Tea Caddy. It is covered in Ronnie's beautiful Paterae. Ronnie will teach you how to choose and use a packet of contrasting veneers to make this beautiful application of a shell on any appropriate piece you build. Using a powered scroll saw, bench chisels, hot plate and sand for shading, Ronnie will teach you how to create this beautiful period furniture elements and assemble it, ready to inlay the shell into your special project.
