These were some projects we worked on in Steve Lattas Decorative Details class at the Marc Adams School. We made our own tools for the line work. The bell flowers were cut with a gouge.

Very nice! How do you make perfectly symmetrical shapes like in the third picture?

The curves are radius grooves that were cut with an inlay radius cutter we made in class. LN is now making them http://www.lie-nielsen.com/catalog.php?cat=549#
The berries hide the holes left by the inlay tool. The border line hides the curves in the corners.

Thanks for sharing John. Did you use hot sand to burn the flower petals?

HOw did you enjoy your studies at the Marc Adams school? I completed the 2 year distance mastery program with Gary Rogowski, Northwest Woodworking Studio, in Portland. It was a great experience and boy I don’t have to look much further than my earliest pieces to see my progress. I’m looking to attend an inlay class with David Marks in March. Inlay is something I would like to improve and certainly adds another dimension to your piece. Great work and thanks for sharing it with us.

I enjoyed the classes at Marc Adams. When the week was over I still wanted more. Thats a good sign. They feed you lunch and there’s an ice cream machine in the cafeteria. I think there should be one in every shop! Don’t know about David except for the TV show. Steve Latta taught line and berry work, bell flowers and some federal ovals. I would highly recomend Steve. Good luck and thanks for the compliments.
