Hello everyone, a few people have asked me for plans on how to build the folded slotted chair I made so I decided to give it my best shot to measure the pieces and give a description on how it was done, so here we go. Wood Used: Ash Parts List:1 1/2” x 3/4” x 48”: 21 1/2” x 3/4” x 38”: 21 1/2” x 3/4” x 36”: 71 1/2” x 3/4” x 34”: 21 1/2” x 3/4” x 15 3/4”: 91 1/2” x 3/4” x 6”: 12 ...
Hey Guys. This is something I thought of today (on my day off) and built within a couple of hours. I didnt use any plans….just an idea in my head. I am going fishing tomorrow and needed somewhere to keep my fish and sit, so decided why not do both at once. I used all scrap pine wood – 1X4’s and 2X4’s (I ran out towards the end and had to finish up with OSB). It sits pretty comfortable, and the height is perfect! Its definitely not going to win any fine wood ...
This commissioned piece is a hand carved, ebonized, faintly gilded, and upholstered, wing back chair. It is upholstered in black leather and faux hide, over 18 hand tied springs. It has come to be known as “Bambi”. As always, I welcome your comments AND critiques on this latest project. This custom designed and fit chair is for a very petite lady who has always had problems with chairs fitting her. It is a “modified” wing back chair that is actually designed to be more of an office chai...
The Dining chairs are coming along nicely now, with corner braces in place, and a mock up seat cushion.We found some nice genuine leather today, that is the same color as the mock up.
My woodworker friends… Here is a brief video showing the steps involved in sculpting a Maloof Inspired rocker seat. I hope you enjoy seeing the dust fly! Sculpting a Maloof Rocker Seat>
This was my first rocking chair I made, I built it about 3 months ago, actually did a blog on here about the build but never actually posted up final pictures actually this is the blog…..lol I’ve since built 4 more chairs out of various woods, this one was built using wormy soft maple that my brother had cut about 10 years ago from the bush behind my house. I gave this chair to my grandparents, as I didn’t fell that I could sell my first one also the ” quality ...
Well, I had a couple more things I wanted to make first, but my wife kind of changed my priorities for me. She started out by commenting on how the new ones looked in the store, and then started with how nice a new one would look in our dining room. I took the hint. So, where to start? Well, I asked her what she wanted and I got, “I don’t know, just make something. I trust you.” Hmm… No restrictions! That’s nice. Now what do I want? Chairs would be th...
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 ...
…So I decided to take the plunge and make something for sale…on spec…I like the Morris chairs so that’s what I went with. Always a timeless classic, clean lines, and fun to build! I brought forth the Visa and bought $3000 worth of white oak (this is my first venture into the “professional” arena). I planned on building 4 chairs and ottomans. I’m not going to quit my day job, but thought I’d give it whirl on the side…The first thing I can tell you is everything that everyone has been sayi...
I have seen this design around for a while, and I wanted to make one for my niece. I decided to make a prototype out of low cost wood to see if the geometry worked out. My biggest concern was fingers getting pinched when moving the step up and down. The stool came out pretty good, I think I will add another dowel to the front of the stool so that the back doesn’t swing all the way down when you pick it up.
