Time lapse Woodworking #16: Bubinga live edge chair rail & sculpting a bar stool

517 days ago by Canadian Woodworks | 6 comments »

Hi everyone, I’ve finally put together a small bit of footage from my daily activities in my wood working shop. I’ve been working on a Walnut and Bubinga home bar which is all done now, but still finishing up the live edge chair rail and wall paneling. At the same time I have 9 bar stools on the go needing to get shipped and deilvered soon. So there’s been some long hours in the shop this past month. In this video I’m making a rabbit on the chair rail to sit on top ...

In the wood shop today #6: Resawing a 17'' wide 2'' thick live edge canadian black walnut slab

723 days ago by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

I’m using my band saw to re-saw a 2’’ thick piece of Canadian black walnut into 2 boards that I will glue up for the top of a coffee table top. This is a live edge board that measures about 17’’ at it’s widest part, I’ve already squared up the board using my planer due to the boards width. I plan on using the resawn boards for a solid walnut maloof inspired coffee table, I’ve never done this coffee table base with a live edge so I’...

Sculpted Juniper picnic table #2: Test top done, now for the custom table

728 days ago by junipercanyon | 5 comments »

Well, all the great compliments from the replacement top (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/68932) have helped inspire me to keep my motivation up to build a full custom table. So I intend to keep in progress pics through the entire build of this table. I hope you enjoy following along! Step 1: Mill out the boards from these ugly logs. Step 2: Lay out the boards how I want them to fit together, and then cut to length. I went with 7’-1” on this project as it worked well...

Sculpted Juniper picnic table #1: Shaped and sanded

735 days ago by junipercanyon | 8 comments »

My mom bought a simple 2×4 picnic table a few years ago and the top has not held up well. The boards are twisted and warped, and I thought it would be a good “test” subject for a new top using an idea that I have had for a while. Juniper grows with a very rapid taper, and finding trees big enough to make wide straight edge boards out of are few and far between. So I had the idea of alternating wide/skinny ends of the boards and leaving the live edge intact to give me the wide...
