Part 1: Attaching a coffee table storage shelf with dowels

1346 days ago by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

In this time lapse, i’m building a trestle coffee table from Walnut. At this point i’m attaching the underside storage to the top of the table. The underside of the top and entire storage shelf has been sanded up to 500 grit and buffed with a wool pad to burnish and clean out the pores in the wood. What a shine one can achieve from just bare wood, its amazing, silky smooth! First I measure and drill the holes for the 2’’ x 3/8’’ dowels that will attach...

Part 2: Late night wipe on rub off oil finish

1343 days ago by Canadian Woodworks | 10 comments »

Well we had a long day in the shop, working on a custom rocking chair which is really coming along great. Joel sanded and burnished the back braces up to a wonderful glow, showing off the extreme curly figure they have. But that’s another story, here I took another time lapse of me applying a coat of our 3 part finish to a trestle coffee table and the top to a dining table we’ve been working on. The finish is a mixture of equal parts of Raw Tung oil, Boiled Linseed oil and P...

Part 3: Custom Wooden Rocking Chair Arm Shaping

1340 days ago by Canadian Woodworks | 8 comments »

We start by showing the Kutzall carbide grinding disc we use to do most of the sculpting on our rocking chairs, it is attached to a basic angle grinder. We then go to work, the arms start about 2’’ thick and also have a 1.5’’ thick transition block at the front leg arm joint. We want to remove the chunky look and be left with smooth flowing lines that your eye and hand will want to explore. I then switch to a kutzall grinding burr attached to a Fordom grinding s...

Part 5: Spinning custom wooden rocking chair

1320 days ago by Canadian Woodworks | 11 comments »

This is a test of a jimmy rigged lazy susan mounted to a slow speed gear motor.I always have ideas running through my head about how to share my custom wooden rocking chairs and other pieces, this is one of the less refined ideas, but i’m happy my idea is going to work out well once I get the bugs worked out. Hopefully soon I will build a dolly for the camera so the camera can move while the chair rotates. This example is using a Walnut with Ebony plugs custom wood rocking chair, ...

This time around in our time lapse woodworking series I’m sanding a pair of Canadian Black Walnut panels that will be assembled into a frame and panel.

Part 9: Carving walnut bar stool seat

1289 days ago by Canadian Woodworks | 7 comments »

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 ...

A back brace is built using 4 layers each layer being about 2.2mm thick, the top or front layer is Birdseye Maple the rest are Walnut. This chair will be Black Canadian Walnut thus the the Birdseye Maple will give a attractive and interesting contrast to the rest of the chair.

I’m sanding a solid walnut seat with a Festool RO150. I progress through sanding grits 150, 220, 320, 400, 500 and a burnishing pad. This is about a 40minute process made into a time lapse that is about 4:30 long. This is after I’ve ground out the seat using a kutzall carbide wheel, you can also view that process in my you tube channel. Thanks for watching and hope you enjoy.

Part 19: Sculpting wood chair parts with Kutzall carbide

324 days ago by Canadian Woodworks | 5 comments »

I’ve been working on a set of dining chairs so I took some time to show how I sculpt some of this chair. The underside of the seat and round over on the legs needed to be sculpted to match the original chair I’ve been commissioned to build. I use Kutzall brand shaping wheels and grinding burrs for the die grinder. I love there carbide shaping tools, they never wear out and are extremely safe because there are hundreds of little cutting burrs that seem to be very easy to control...
