This course is designed to give students an understanding of the original methods and materials used to produce historic millwork as well as techniques for its repair. An in-depth survey of paneling, flooring, doors, windows and moldings are discussed through the examination of Eastfield’s extensive collection of period examples in order to help the student understand appropriate marks & textures of the original methods used to produce them. Through a combination of demonstrations & class participation we use both period & modern tools to repair & reproduce moldings, panels, door & window parts, etc. Students are encouraged to bring samples of original millwork for discussion and/or class work.
