Master carver and teacher, Ray Journigan will be teaching the carving of the 18th Century furniture elements that might appear on a period highboy or other fine piece in this 6 day workshop.

The carvings you’ll learn include :

Carved acanthus/Chippendale baroque style Drawer Front

Carved Rosette

Carved Flame Finial

Carved Pineapple

Apron section (as time permits)

No one who studies Period Furniture can help but be drawn to a Philadelphia Highboy when they enter a
museum or period home. This class has been requested by many carvers of period furniture. Wanting more
than the standard Ball & Claw foot class, this class dives deep into the other elements not offered by most
classes out there. In this six day class, period furniture maker Ray Journigan will teach students the techniques used to accomplish these beautiful embellishment utilising
his perfected method of demonstrations and exercises.  Students will get plenty of carving time in as they learn to layout and carve on round stock to create a flame finial.
Next, they will carve a Chippendale rosette as found on gooseneck moldings. We’ll carve the inconic Philadelphia Pineapple.  And a Philadelphia Highboy
would not be complete without a drawer front carved with a recessed shell an acanthus carved surround. All
parts will be cut out and ready to carve so the student will not be wasting valuable learning time standing by a
machine. As a bonus, if time permits, Ray will also show the layout and carving of an intricate apron.

Ray will explain the importance of the proper carving station for comfort, Proper lighting, and
sharpening.

A cut list is available if anyone wants to bring their own wood.  We will be using mahogany for the class due it’s suitability for carving and keeping things correct for the period.  A materials fee will be determined as we get closer to the class, but it will be in the range of $175.
