Why spend hours laboring over a one-of-a-kind piece of woodworking only to add a $2 piece of hardware that your neighbor has on his kitchen cabinet? This special session is dedicated to mold making, reproduction and cold metal bronze casting to create or reproduce just about any form and texture, whether a found object such as a pine cone, a finely carved picture frame, a hand-sculpted door pull or your big toe.

This process can help to embellish your work with unique details and avoid chain-store-bought cabinet pulls or ornamentation. Adding these features to your work in bronze can be the perfect icing on the cake. No special equipment is required, in 20 minutes a mold and casting can be made and is easier than baking that cake. Grove will expand and demonstrate techniques shared in his Fine Woodworking Fall 2015 Master Class article.
