Start to Finish with Peter Gedrys
Fine Woodworking contributors Roland Johnson and Peter Gedrys were out on the circuit this past winter giving popular presentations at The Woodworking Shows across the country. Here’s another chance to get some instruction from Peter.
Peter Gedrys will be teaching a week long class at The School at Annapolis Woodworks in Maryland, May 16- 20. The class is described as an intense 5-day workshop geared to woodworkers and turners. Peter will be covering how to control blotching in woods like maple and cherry, standard and decorative glazing, pore filling, and finish schedules. He will also focus on color theory – providing information to the students so they can successfully color match to mimic the look of a finish from a photo or to conceal sapwood.
Here’s what one of his students from Charlotte, NC said:
“I really appreciate your time, and knowledge that you pass on to all of us rookies out in this world. As a woodworker that talks to a lot of other woodworkers, and I mean a lot of other woodworkers, “finishing” just seems to be something that scares a lot of woodworkers. You are really providing a great service by doing these shows. I hope one day to attend one of your classes and if you ever decide to do a book, I’ll be right there for it.”
There is still some space in the class. If you can’t make it to Maryland, you can still learn from Peter by reading his articles in Fine Woodworking. Or to find other classes you might want to attend, check out the events listing for our frequent contributors.
