Maloof Low Back Chairs #1: Rough up

01-18-2014 02:02 AM by Dave G | 2 comments »

The hard maple table displayed in my projects needs chairs. We have a small house and a small dining room. The chairs must slide mostly under the table out of the way. Another LJ displayed his low back chair and the idea was born! I bought Charles Brocks plans and video. I chose hard maple to match the table. Sure it’s hard. But once you’re grinding with carbide tools and sanding to sculpt it doesn’t matter much. I’m keeping track of my hours because I...

My Maloof lowback #13: I'm calling this one finished - except for the finish

03-24-2013 11:26 AM by Antti | 9 comments »

I swear I’ll never do a sculpted piece of furniture again… the volume of sanding is staggering! This one is about one working day ahead of its younger sister, but I wanted to get something finished, so I have been allocating my efforts only to this one. Just slap the Osmo oil wax on this, and take it upstairs for the ooh’s and aah’s ? The plan was to use the “original formula” for the finish, but they don’t sell that stuff in Finland, and the US...

My Maloof lowback #12: On a scale from 0 to Sam Maloof...

01-05-2013 11:11 AM by Antti | 3 comments »

...I can start to see that I wont achieve the perfection I was expecting from my first chairs ever… It is quite a shock! When approaching the final shape I begin to fully appreciate Sam’s talent, as the shapes prove so difficult to recreate. However, I foresee the final product to be well above zero! Today I finished most of the shaping with rasps. Next time I attack these puppies, I will be using sanding blocks. P.S. It is...

My Maloof lowback #11: Back in business

12-02-2012 01:53 PM by Antti | 1 comment »

It has been 98 days since I last worked on these: I got a motorcycle and started riding again. I dont have enough spare time for two hobbies, so this had to wait until the bike was put away for the winter. Since August the onboard computer says I have ridden 21 hours, which is exactly 100% of the discretionary time I have had for myself in the last 98 days. But now its woodworking again:First I evened the legs, using a tip from a magazine – the pictures need no further explanation: ...

Stop motion video of a Walnut 3 tier stand

09-22-2012 01:28 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 1 comment »

I had a little fun with an idea I had to take some pictures of a recently completed project. This is a 3 tier walnut stand that is used to display product in a local store. I picked up a few cases of the types of product that would be displayed on the stand. I would take a picture then add a jar then take another picture, I used Quicktime 7 to make a video of the image sequence. I wish I would have taken a couple shots of each product by its self on the shelf, I think I could have played w...
