The masterpieces of the 18th century were built using tools and techniques generally unfamiliar to us today. In this introductory class, Adam Cherubini will survey period estate inventories listing cabinetmakers' and joiners' tools to illustrate what tools were in common use in the 18th c. Students will have the opportunity to handle tools new and old, learn their function, and develop basic technique. The class won't delve into tool collecting, connoisseurship, or restoration (at least during normal class hours)
18th Century Period Woodworking with Adam Cherubini (continued)
Students will leave with a source based understanding of what tools existed, and basically how to use them. This is an introductory class for those interested in doing more of their woodwork by hand. It is highly recommended for anyone wishing to take any subsequent classes with Adam Cherubini.
