In this video in my time lapse wood working series, I’m carving a Canadian Black Walnut seat.
I have already laid out the seat outline and drilled my depth holes as reference. I first use a kutzall coarse carbide disc to rough grind the seat. I find it best to remove material evenly over the entire seat.
Once I finish with the rough grinding, I switch to a 7’’ 60 grit sanding disc on my much larger and heavier ridgid grinder. This is a work out on the fore arms!
I then flip the seat over and do a little more rough grinding, then touch up the front of the seat where the back of your knees bend, this part of the send need to be a nice fair curve to add style and comfort.
Once I’m happy with the rough sanding I move on to the festool sander using 150grit.
The music provided for this video is from Watasun a band that I friend of mine is in, he plays a cajon and steel drums. I hope you enjoy the tune if you’d like to hear more of there music from WATASUN please visit there myspace page.
