    Foundations of Classical Relief Carving with Chuck Rinehart 19-1

    A White Card is Not Required


    If this class is full, please add yourself to the Waitlist so we can notify you about future class options.

    This is a three week version, the first half, of Chuck's popular Introduction to Classical Carving.  This class covers the essential topics with a lot of hands-on activities, to prepare you for more adventuresome projects, including the three week Acanthus leaf or Lettering classes that you will be prepared to take after this.  In addition, with a bit more experience, you will be able to take his Borders or Monogram classes, tackle projects on your own or take one of Mary May's classes next fall.

    Chuck Rinehart has been woodworking for 60 years and the last 25 have included an extensive background in classical European carving.  This will be a hands-on opportunity to be guided by an expert.  Chuck taught carving classes in Rochester, NY before moving here in 2017.

    The class is limited to six students because there is a lot of personal supervision and limited bench space.

    This class requires a modest investment in specific carving tools, and a detailed list will be emailed to registrants.  Cost of new tools could be in the range of $125-175.  Follow-on classes will require more tools, which you can acquire over time.  The Guild was able to invest in a rather substantial collection of tools from an estate, and we have a few tools sets suitable for this class available to rent ($25), as a way to recoup our investment and to help you.  

    The four hours per session are mostly you carving, with some demonstrations.

    The class will be held in three sessions at the Multnomah Art Center (MAC) on consecutive Saturdays from 10:00 to 2:00 PM, but you should arrive 15 to 30 minutes early to set up your bench and get organized.  You will be expected to do carving between sessions.  Practice exercises are planned as a way for you to build specific skills and to expose you to a variety of tools and techniques.

    You will be required to purchase Chris Pye's popular book called "Chris Pye's Woodcarving Course & Reference Manual "(Fox Chapel), about $18 on Amazon, lower price if used, Powell's might have it, and copies are sometimes available in libraries.

    One exercise will focus on using a veiner (#11), which is described in the book, but you can also preview this exercise online by clicking here.  There will be other exercises to introduce other basic tools.

    Students should plan to bring a snack; lunch will not be provided, but there will be drinks.

    The class coordinator is Larry Wade, 503-312-7745 (text and cell); contact him for any questions.

    In order to complete your registration payment must be made, preferably online when registering, but no later than 7 days before the class. Please go online and use PayPal or Visa, and if mailing a check make it to the order of the Guild of Oregon Woodworkers. Reference the class title on the memo line (especially the date code at the end, 19-1) and mail it to: GOOW-Registrar, c/o Julie Niemeyer, 20282 SW Inglis Drive, Beaverton, OR 97007

    Letter Carving with Chuck Rinehart 19-1

    Some Carving experience helpful; a White Card is not required


    If this class is full, please add yourself to the Waitlist so we can notify you about a future class. If you are interested in this topic but can't take it now, send an email to lpwade@gmail.com.

    It is helpful if you have some prior carving experience, nominally the Introduction to Classical Carving class that Chuck teaches, or something close.  If you don't, please call one of the coordinators below to see if it makes sense for you to take this class.

    This is a three session class on alternate Tuesdays to learn the basics of incised (not raised) letter carving.  This is a big topic and the class will be introductory, following the methods developed by master carver Chris Pye from the UK, as described in his book and on his web site.  Chuck will explain and demonstrate the various processes and coach you as you create a practice board.  The class is hands-on, and you will be expected to practice between sessions, which is the main reason the class sessions are spaced two weeks apart.

    This class will use the a Roman font, about 2" high.  The basic techniques include cutting the straight letters, with serifs, and the curves on complex letters.  You will need several carving tools to support this work.  You will need a wide straight chisel (#1/30 or thereabouts, double bevel) for the long straight portions, a #1/12 double bevel for short straight segments, a #3/10 or #3/12 (British #4) fishtail for the serifs and a variety of curved gouges for the round portions of letters.  Details will be provided ahead of the class.  Some tools might be available for rental.

    You will need to buy or borrow Chris Pye's book (Lettercarving in Wood, A Practical Course), which is out of print but sold used on Amazon, but is quite expensive.  You are encouraged to buy, download and watch Chris Pye's video lessons, formerly sold on DVD but now only available for download for $20, click here for a link to buy and download.

    Chuck Rinehart has been woodworking for 60 years and the last 25 have included an extensive background in Classical Carving.  This class sequence will be a hands-on opportunity to be guided by an expert.  Chuck has taught this class in Rochester, NY before moving to Portland in 2017.

    The class is limited to six students because there is a lot of personal supervision and limited bench space.

    The four hours per session will give you time to carve and experience a variety of techniques.  Most of the class is you carving, with some demonstrations.  Classes are every other week to give you time for homework.

    The class will be held in three weekly sessions at the Guild Shop from 9:00 AM to 1:000 PM, but you can arrive up to 30 minutes early to help setup and do a little work.  You will be expected to do carving between sessions.  

    Students should plan to bring a snack; lunch will not be provided, but there will be drinks.

    Make A Folding Cocktail Sized Table- A Hands On Basics Class


          Instructor- Ken Hall


    A White Card is required. This means you need to have taken a Safety & Orientation session!

        



    The class is designed to assist you to construct a cocktail sized folding table. The table is 22” high with a top 17 ½ ”x19” . The top is in two parts that allow you to easily fold the table for transport and storage. The folded size is 2 ½” x 19” x 26”. You will use both hand and power tools in its construction. The table will be built from rough sawn lumber which will be milled to the specifications in a cut list.
     
    You will learn the following:
    To plan the layout and cutting of the required parts from roughly sawn lumber.
    Milling of the parts to their rough dimensions using the band saw and/or the table saw.
    Sizing of the parts using the jointer and the planer and/or hand planes.
    Setup the drill press for accurate placement of multiple holes.
    Use of rasps to create rounded ends on the legs.
    Using hand planes to create a finish-ready surface on the parts.
    Learn how to create a wedged tenon joint for attaching the handle to the legs.
    Use pocket hole screws in a non-standard way.
     
    The goal of this class is for each student to go home with a finish-ready table and the knowledge to create other tables.
     
    The wood for the table will be provided by the Guild, but if you want a special or figured wood for the top, please bring enough wood to make a top ½ - 5/8 inch thick and 18”x 20” in 2 or more pieces. Note: the top is screwed to the braces underneath, so do not bring wood that is so hard that it will not except self-tapping screws without pilot holes.
     
    Handles for the tables will be turned by the instructor prior to class, but alternative methods of construction will be demonstrated.


    TOOL LIST:


    Bring the following tools:

    pencils
    square

    Band Saw Clinic

    Instructor: Chip Webster

    White Card Required


    The band saw can be one of the most versatile, accurate and safe machines in your workshop – providing it is set up and used properly.  New or even a well used 14” band saw with a ½ HP motor can be tuned to cut precision joints or re-saw flawlessly without purchasing aftermarket accessories or expensive blades. 


    Proper setup of the saw, including selecting and setting blade tension and tracking, as well as simple enhancements you can make to improve the performance of your saw will be covered in the morning. We’ll move on to technique as taught by Michael Fortune, practicing cutting to the line, cutting curves and re-sawing. A variety of useful jigs designed to be used with the band saw will be demonstrated.  Illustrations will be provided so you can make your own. A Green Card is not required for this class.

    This class is based on the band saw clinic Michael Fortune taught in 2015 and 2016 for the Guild of Oregon Woodworkers. Michael operates one of the most diversely equipped workshops in North America.   It includes three industrial table saws but he can’t remember the last time he ripped a piece of wood on a table saw.  Instead he prefers to use a 15” General International band saw.  He purchased this band saw in 1974, tracked the blade once with only modest tension, installed a factory fence parallel to the miter slot and has not had to adjust it in 40 years. The class will be taught at the Guild shop using the Jet 20” band saw and the Grizzly 14” band saw. The differences in the Felder band saw will be addressed.

    Materials and lunch are included. If you have questions please contact the class coordinator: Ken Hall, ken@old-scholls.com. 

    Please register online and pay using PayPal or by check made to the order of the Guild of Oregon Woodworkers. Reference the class title on the memo line and mail it to: GOOW-Registrar, C/O Julie Niemeyer, 20282 SW Inglis Drive, Beaverton, OR 97007

    Relief Carving 102 - 19-1

    If this class is full, put yourself on the WAITLIST or send an email to lpwade@gmail.com to get added.


    This six hour class is for novice and intermediate carvers and provides an introduction to relief style carving using only two tools, and is almost entirely hands-on..

    The project is small and deceptively simple, but will teach you important lessons about grain direction and how to use two fundamental tools useful for all carving.  You will have two opportunities to carve this project, once for practice and once to try to make it prettier.  It is a classical ornamental design that could be used for decorating box lids, furniture or mantel pieces.

    If you've done some relief carving in the past this might be a good refresher and a good chance to practice more.

    Experienced carver Jeff Harness will be the instructor, using Basswood.

    You will need to bring the following:

    Carving safety glove (reinforced Kevlar), if you have one, but we will have one to use if you want.

    Tools:
    Sharp gouge and a V-tool. palm handles, mostly likely Flexcut brand but others will work.  Flexcut palm tools are 25% off at Woodcraft through January, but usually are 10% off there or at Woodcrafters. 
    #3 fishtail gouge,  1/2" (Flexcut model FR443)
    V-tool  3/8" or 1/2" (capable of making a 1/4" deep cut), 60 or 70 degrees, not a soft V.  (Flexcut model FR403).  Flexcut only sells 3/8" and 5/8".

    Note taking material

    The palm tools will be highly useful to you for future projects.  Locally Woodcrafters has the largest supply, but they might be available at Woodcraft, and can be found online at (www.cascadecarvers.com, in Kennewick, WA), on Amazon and many other online retailers.

    A powered sharpening system will be available so we can help you make sure your tools are sharp.

    This is a one session class, and lunch will be provided.

    The class is intended to help you experience one of the main styles of carving, and will be a good foundation in case you want to take a more advanced class from nationally-known professional carver Mary May, who will teach two day classes for advanced beginner and beyond carvers during Oct 2019..

    For questions contact the class coordinator, Larry Wade, at lpwade@gmail.com or 503-312-7745 (cell and text).

    Hands On Carving Classes


          Instructor- Mary May



     Mary May lives in Charleston, SC and is internationally known.  She is a carver in the classical or traditional sense.  She makes her living carving on commission, teaching in-person classes, publishing and running a successful online carving school.  For more information see her web site by clicking here.  

    The specific projects Mary will teach won't be decided until the spring, but you can expect that there will be several projects in each two day class, and that they will be different.  She has a vast body to choose from and we will pick ones that emphasize skill building so you can apply the techniques to a variety of projects.  Examples of possibilities include carving a scallop shell out of Walnut, an Acanthus leaf in the Renaissance style, a leaf on the shoulder of a cabriole leg, lettering, and architectural moldings.


    COST for each two day class is to be determined but will probably be in the $375 range each . It's free to sign up on the interest list.


    If you have any questions, please contact Larry Wade at lpwade@gmail.com.

    INTEREST LIST - Carving a Border with Chuck Rinehart- not a class (yet)


    Register your interest in taking the six week class to introduce you to the wonderful world of carving a border.


          Instructor- Chuck Rinehart



     Chuck Rinehart taught this class once for us but has taught it before at his former club in Rochester, NY.  

    This is a three week introduction class based on classical patterns useful for frames and borders for furniture and architectural (decorative) purposes.  In three weeks you will learn enough to accomplish quite a bit, but you will also learn this is a big field with lots of options and time required.   Hopefully this class will whet your appetite, and it will also teach you some techniques for other types of carving.

    You are required to have long handled tools useful for lettering, along with having a carving mallet and access to a variety of gouges.  The Guild ownssome tools that might be useful for you in case you don't have any.

    Prior carving experience is required and taking Chuck's Intro class first is recommended.

    The project for this class will be a floral pattern from antiquity, about 36" long by 4" tall.  You will learn how to create the pattern by copying, enlarging and repeating an existing design, trace it onto your wood, and then use a plunge router with small straight bits to remove the bulk of the background before shaping the elements of the floral design.  It is a challenging, but interesting and practical project.


    COST of the class is $180, including materials, but not the tools. It's free to sign up on the interest list.


    If you have any questions, please contact Larry Wade at lpwade@gmail.com.

          Instructor- Chuck Rinehart





    Chuck Rinehart has not taught this class for us yet but has before at his former club in Rochester, NY.  

    This is a three week introduction class based on classical patterns useful for decorating furniture and making stand-alone designs.  In three weeks you will learn enough to accomplish quite a bit, but you will also learn this is a big field with lots of options and time required.   Hopefully this class will whet your appetite, and it will also teach you some techniques for other types of carving.

    Prior carving experience is required and taking Chuck's Intro class first is recommended.

    The project for this class will create a pattern of your design, using elements from classical books on stylized lettering from antiquity.  The design can be as simple or complex as you want, and what you choose almost doesn't matter, because you will be learning the techniques needed to create a wide variety of patterns.

    Make A Nakashima Inspired Sitting Bench/Coffee Table 

    Instructor: Taeho Kwon          
    White Card Required


    In this 6 day workshop you will construct this beautiful sitting bench or coffee table using traditional timber frame joinery, which is known for its integral strength utilizing locking joinery. This class will challenge and improve your hand tool and machine skills. Taeho will discuss the concept and layout of the joints, as well as the preparation and sharpening of the Eastern hand tools used in the class.There are many books available about Eastern joinery that informs how to make the joints but not exactly where to use and not use, and why. During this workshop Taeho will share the answers to the questions he had, like these, during his apprenticeship years.

    At the end of the class you will have a greater understanding of joinery beyond the basic dovetail, and mortise and tenon. The table or bench, with the exposed mortise and tenon joinery on top, will take your woodworking to a new level.

    The approximate size of this bench or coffee table is 58″L x 20″W x 18″H. The construction will be walnut post and legs with a western maple top, achieving a nice contrasting wood appearance, based on availability.

    This workshop is normally targeted for woodworkers with intermediate skill levels, however,Taeho has developed jigs, to assist less experienced woodworkers to be successful with the hand tools used in the class. Students must have a White Card and should have some experience with the jointer, planer, and router table. This class will be staffed with Shop Attendants to monitor the safe use of Guild machines and to provide assistance.

    What you’ll learn:

    •  A brief history of traditional Eastern and Western timber framing
    •  Skills and technique in the use, care, and sharpening of Eastern handsaws and chisels
    •  How to properly utilize a wood's grain
    •  How to expand the lifespan of the wood in furniture design and building
    •  Timber framing joinery
    •  Milling to final size
    •  Marking and layout
    •  Routing with a router table
    •  Use and preparation of live edge slabs

    Students will be provided a tool list well in advance to prepare for this workshop. A work party will be scheduled for materials preparation. Materials will be provided.

    You may select to bring your own slab if desired. The slab should be approximately 48” – 60”L x 12” - 18”W x 13/4" - 2" thick. Contact the class coordinator to adjust the price before paying for the class.

    Biography

    Taeho Kwon attended East Carolina University majoring in Commercial Arts to become an interior designer. His true goal was to make his own designs, instead of hiring other makers. To achieve this, he applied for jobs out in the field and started working on fine carpentry. He learned everything he could from framing to exteriors, anything that would improve his skills. After learning and practicing for 12 years, he decided to take a step further and extend his understanding of joinery. In 2010, he traveled to Korea and attended The School of Traditional Korean Buildings, earning a Certificate of Maintenance and Restoration for Korean traditional buildings. He learned to make Buddhist temples and a “King’s Palace.” Since then, he has spent numerous years gaining experience on the maintenance and restoration of Korean traditional houses, as well as temple buildings. He focused on temples because he wanted to improve his knowledge of joinery and the secrets of making them last for thousands of years. In temple building, there are three times more different joinery involved than in fine furniture building. His plan has been to utilize this advanced joinery in his own furniture design and making, which is represented in his sitting bench/coffee table creation.

    Direct any questions to Chip Webster,  jdwebster3@comcast.net , the class coordinator.

    GARRETT HACK:  WORKING WITH CURVES
    White Card Required    


    Garrett Hack has served as a contributing editor at Fine Woodworking magazine and has contributed dozens of articles to that publication for over a quarter century. He is the author of The Handplane Book and Classic Hand Tools. His own unique style combines elements of Shaker and Federal forms with whimsical elements executed to perfection. His work has been featured in the New York Times, Home Furniture, and New Hampshire Home.  His visit to the Guild in 2018 was a huge success, and we’re delighted to have him return for another visit in 2019.

    Working with Curves


    As your furniture design and technical skills develop, so does your interest in using curves. We'll cover the basic ways to create those curves, from cutting them out of solid stock, such as along the edge of a table, to laminating and steam bending more complex shapes for chairs. What are the advantages and disadvantages of each method — speed of making, stability, consistency, economy — and how do you decide the best approach?  We'll go through as many processes as we can, from designing curves to producing quick patterns, bending forms, thin laminates, coopered shapes, veneered curves, and most importantly dealing with the joinery of curved parts. You'll see, because you'll be doing all the steps, too.  

    A list of tools and materials will be provided well in advance of the class. Beverages, snacks and lunch will be provided.

    Please note that your registration for this class is not complete until the class registration fee is received by the registrar. Class registration fees must be paid in full within 7 days of registration to avoid being dropped from the class list. You can pay online using PayPal, or by check made payable to the Guild of Oregon Woodworkers. Reference the class title and number on the memo line and mail it to: GOOW-Registrar, C/O Julie Niemeyer, 20282 SW Inglis Drive, Beaverton, OR 97007.

    Because of the expected popularity of this seminar, early registration is strongly encouraged.

    GARRETT HACK:  CABINET CURIOSITIES
    White Card Required


    Garrett Hack has served as a contributing editor at Fine Woodworking magazine and has contributed dozens of articles to that publication for over a quarter century. He is the author of The Handplane Book and Classic Hand Tools. His own unique style combines elements of Shaker and Federal forms with whimsical elements executed to perfection. His work has been featured in the New York Times, Home Furniture, and New Hampshire Home.  His visit to the Guild in 2018 was a huge success, and we’re delighted to have him return for another visit in 2019.

    CABINET CURIOSITIES

    This is a six (6) day workshop. Students will be supplying and milling their own lumber to rough dimensions prior to the workshop.

    Case construction is a fundamental furniture making skill.  Designing and building a small cabinet is an ideal project to explore the design, details, and challenges of solid wood construction before starting on much larger pieces. We’ll delve into strong case joinery, choosing appropriate materials, dealing with wood movement, securing shelves and backs, making and attaching moldings, case corner details, making and hinging doors, and if we have time, making drawers. Emphasis will be on hand skills and hand tools to size, smooth, shape, and fit parts. We will also integrate machines to make the building process efficient and accurate. 

    A list of tools and materials will be provided well in advance of the class, but please register early.  There is a fair amount of stock prep work necessary before the first day of class; your early registration will offer plenty of time to obtain stock, let it acclimate to your shop, and complete rough milling tasks before class.  Final milling of most components will occur during the class periods. To make hinging the doors easier, we will make a before-class purchase of the proper hinges for a cabinet of this size and divide that cost up among the class.

    Hinges, snacks and beverages, and lunches will be provided.

    Students registering before 1/15/ 2019 will receive an invoice for the $1,230.00 but have the option to make an early payment of $400. The balance of $830 is due by 1/31/19. Contact Julie NIemeyer at jdgredvig@comcast.net for instructions

    If registering after 1/15/2019 full payment is required within 7 days of registration.

    A cancellation notice must be submitted to the GOOW-Registrar 30 days prior to the workshop for a 50% refund.  If the vacancy can be filled with another student, a full refund will be received. 

    Please note that your registration for this class is not complete until the class registration fee is received by the registrar.
