Sculpted Maloof inspired Rocking Chairs #1: Rough shapes and construction

683 days ago by Ehren | 7 comments »

For a while now I’ve wanted to build a rocking chair. I was finally tipped into starting the construction after my dad is retired after a thousand years and I found my wife trying to rock my kid to sleep in a folding chair in the nursery and so I’ve finally set aside my other projects and buckled down. In the purest form of logic I decided since I’ve set aside the time for one, might as well build two, just don’t tell the wife or father which one I make all the mistak...

Time lapse Woodworking #12: Sanding a Maloof rocking chair seat

687 days ago by Canadian Woodworks | 3 comments »

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.

Repairing a Swiss chair...and building a new one

693 days ago by slackeng | 4 comments »

I have a patient buddy who is teaching me how to repair and build a Swiss chair. So far we have repaired the original. We are using poplar for the new chair; we have cut out the back, and built the seat. The next challenge is to figure out the multiple angles for the legs and cut the holes in the seat. Advice welcome!

Outdoor Furniture #4: Adirondack Chair - End of Day Three and It's Ready for Paint!

700 days ago by Retsof | 2 comments »

I’m pretty psyched about this chair. I was able to get it completely assembled and I even filled all the exposed screw holes tonight. I’ll be ready to prime and paint after a quick touch up with the sander first thing in the morning. I can’t wait to be sitting in this chair by my pool tomorrow evening. Here’s a view from the rear showing those beefy 2×8 legs. I think the arched back looks great. I’m a pro with the jigsaw after this build. Now ...

Outdoor Furniture #3: Adirondack Chair - Major Progress

700 days ago by Retsof | 2 comments »

The Adirondack Chair project is really starting to come together. Yesterday, I got all of the straight pieces to make one complete chair cut to size and then I ran out of Douglas Fir lumber. My “Totally Awesome” daughter, Lila (age 10) surprised me by making a sandwich and delivering it to the garage when she thought I could use a break. She even used fresh picked ingredients from my garden on the sandwich! It’s nice to have daughters who like to take care of the O...

Outdoor Furniture #1: First Time Building An Adirondak Chair

702 days ago by Retsof | 0 comments »

My old patio set has seen better days. It was a pretty inexpensive set that I picked up when we lived in Phoenix fourteen years ago, so I guess I got my money’s worth out of it. Anything that last fourteen years in the Phoenix and Las Vegas sun is pretty amazing. :) I looked into the cost of replacing the slings on four chairs and a chaise lounge and I’m not sure it’s worth doing. Since I have the time and the tools, this is the perfect opportunity to take a crack at bu...

Maloof rocking chair class question

817 days ago by bkap | 6 comments »

I am considering offering a new special for those who would like to take my Maloof-style rocking chair class. After talking to a number of woodworkers, I have come up with a “class bundle” offer for a week of instruction on rocking chair science. If at least six (6) woodworkers sign up for any week-long (5 days) “class bundle,” then, by a drawing, one of those woodworkers will receive that “class bundle” for FREE. Included in the five-day (Monday t...

Adirondack chair: part 1

825 days ago by Hopman | 4 comments »

Oh boy, i may have bitten off more than i can chew. After a couple easy wine barrel stave candle holders, i decided to give an adirondack chair a shot. With some rough measurements and pictures i found on the web, i took my first stab today. First, i realized this project will use almost an entire barrel. 17 staves i think. It’s going to be HEAVY. First i layed out the staves for each part of the chair. Most of the day was spent putting the chair back together, and then assembling one o...
