Beyond the Basic Shaded Fan with Bob Van Dyke
Shaded fans were a common decorative motif in the Federal furniture of the late 18th century. They were often inlaid into the corners of table tops and drawer fronts. The segments are shaded using hot sand and then put together to create a three dimensional effect. But ¼ fans are the basic which we will start with– but that is just the beginning. Building on the basic sand shading technique, Ct Valley School of Woodworking Director, Bob Van Dyke will introduce a series of other interesting possibilities based on the basic ¼ fan design; creating circles, ½ circles and ovals with all sorts of interesting curved segments. The possibilities are really fascinating and the inlays can be used in all sorts of projects- from a table top, a door panel or a drawer front to a box top, a tray or even a wall hanging. Students will have the opportunity to make a few 1/4 fans and then move on to some ovals or half fans.
