Last week I surprised myself by signing up for an online woodworking course. I am expecting this course will help extend my woodworking skill set. Building a rocking chair will be a leap into unknown territory for me. I do not even know the terms or names given to chair parts. I am reassured that I will come out of this experience okay because I will get guidance from a master woodworker. I won’t be alone in new territory. I signed on a week late. I am expecting the full scale dra...

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) View the original article here. In the above video you’ll see the amazing 17th Century English timber frame farmhouse that I visited recently. I was absolutely taken back by this immaculately reconstructed farmhouse and it’s gorgeous reproduction furniture from the 1600′s. So, of course, I had to share it with y’all! The farm was moved from England to the Frontier Culture Museum in historical Staunton, Virginia (thank yo...

Just a quick video I filmed the other day walking through my shop discussing the projects I have on the go as well as future projects. As always thanks for having a look.Paul
I have seen this chair project in one of the major wood magazines. Now I have a need to build 6 chairs and want to try this design. The only problem is that I can’t remember where I saw this project featured.Can anyone help?The back is steam bent (I think) the arms are curved but may be steam bent as well. I think the seat is sculpted but that isn’t important at the moment.Does anyone remember seeing the article that describes how to build this chair?I’ve included a hand ske...
One of the most mysterious things about Danish modern furniture to me when I started making it was this strange soap finish that is talked about so often. I wondered, “What is this all about”? Well, the easy answer is that it is a soap that is simple washed onto the wood surface. You may wonder how that protects the surface, though. Basically, soaps traditionally where made of oils of some sort or another. Your grandma or great grandma would have used “ivory” soap f...
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.
I had the opportunity to take a few photos last week so here is a selection. Some of the shots are not so good, so please forgive! Since I am posting my own pieces as projects, I am only showing work from other exhibitors. This should give a fair idea of what we get up to down here in the Southern Cape! Chair by Richard Henley. White Alder and hand painted leather. Squiggle Back Chair by Richard Henley. Cape beech and hand painted leather. Pink Ivory Inlays on Cape beech by R...
thought I’d continue the exploration of creative, unique woodworking to get the creative juices flowing and spark some ideas in peoples’ minds. Mostly what I post in the “creative woodworking” blogs are more modern pieces of furniture – only because thats what I like. Feel free to add any photos that YOU find really creative and want to share! Most pics come from www.design-milk.com or www.architonic.com – i’m not affiliated with them what-so-ever&...
