Chairs could have many variations, so the ones pictured here could be the basis for you to take off and make your changes or use for your own setting.

Rocking Chair: An Online Course #1: Need Reference to a Good Book on Chair Making

01-18-2016 04:49 PM by HappyHowie | 6 comments »

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.

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...

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...

Danish Soap Finish

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

06-03-2012 02:24 AM 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.
