In this video I’m applying my 3 part hand rubbed oil/resin finish to a Canadian Black Walnut coffee table base. I talk more about what and amount of ingredients in my 3 part hand rubbed oil resin finish. I can’t call it mine though, pretty sure it’s been used by many many people. I initially read about it in a Sam Maloof book I think it was called Woodworker. Well I hope you enjoy the video, I finish it up by showing the curly walnut book matched live edge coffee table to...

628 days ago by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

1195 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.

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...
