Thank you
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&...
I finally had a day off, so I chopped up the messed up lock-mitered legs by setting the blade right up against the fence at a 45 degree angle. I was able to push the legs through with the help of a featherboard to be as safe as possible. I chopped a bit off each side, but I think the next version will be much better, even if they’re up to 1/2” smaller on each face. I started to run the freshly liberated faces through the table saw to reestablish fresh mitered edges to prepare f...
My wife and I often visit our families in the mountains of western North Carolina. We are planning on visiting next weekend and I spoke with my father today and he suggested that we go for a hike while up to look for Morel mushrooms and ramps (a type of wild leak). In the area of the Appalachian Mountains I grew up ramps are a tradition this time of year. As a young boy I remember hiking in the mountains in search of ramps to dig for family get-togethers. Ramps have such a strong flavor ...
These videos are bending continuous-arm (c-arm) Windsor chair parts. I use locally harvested, green, red oak that has been split and rived down to a workable size. Then I use a draw knife, hand planes, and spoke shaves to shape the oak piece. Here is the exciting part… If cracks occur, they are repaired with thin CA glue and C-clamps. In the past few weeks, I’ve done five c-arms and four have needed repairs. These failures are common with this type of chair due to the ...
