Paterae has a rich and diverse tradition in the Federal Style of American furniture design. These oval-shaped ornaments were often used to give decorative flair to the upper portion, or pilaster, of Federal table legs. In this fourth DVD with inlay master, Steve Latta, we explore the tools, materials, and techniques to create eight specific Paterae designs.
