Plywood template-cut rocking bench. #3: First coat of epoxy

539 days ago by Fridgecritter | 1 comment »

Well, I decided to use epoxy after all, and it seems like it’s going to give the desired effect. I put a quart of epoxy on it for the first coat because I didn’t want it all to just run off the sides. After it dries I will put another quart on. It was surprisingly easy to work with, and had a pretty lengthy drying time. I used a flat block of wood to spread an even coat, and a foam brush to do the side parts. I ran a propane torch over the surface to take out the bubbles, which...

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

811 days ago 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.

TheWoodWhisperer Woodworkers Fighting Cancer Rocking Horse #2: Getting in Shape and putting it together

1048 days ago by PurpLev | 7 comments »

Following yesterdays work I continued shaping the remaining parts. Yesterday I used a rasp on some smaller parts, and today having to work on larger parts and more of them I decided to forgo the rasp work and power up the oscillating belt sander. Looking back now, I am not sure it was any faster, but it required less muscle work at the cost of more dust in the air – and lots of it!. For parts that had duplicates I only shaped 1, and then using the router table and a flush trim bit tr...

Wormy soft maple rocker ( Hal Taylor version ) #9: Lot's of sanding, Glueing the headrest and mounting rockers / shaping rockers

1627 days ago by Canadian Woodworks | 2 comments »

By the end of these pictures I’m siting in a rocking chair, that rocks and is about 95% complete! So I sanded to 320 grit everywhere that it would be hard to once the back supports were installed for good, as well as the supports them selves. Then glued the head rest using some clamps to keep it in line and using the screws as clamps, you remove 2 of the screws once dry. I then turned her over, the chairs that is and drilled my holes for the rockers and attached, proceeded to s...

Toys for my Grandson #1: Jordan's first birthday

2530 days ago by robbi | 7 comments »

Well, as some of you know, I have been working on a rocking horse for my grandson’s first birthday. I finally finished it, I will post a picture of it in my projects. I must say, it was quite the challenge. I had a very frustrating day trying to router the pieces to a template, I finally gave up and just cut them on the band saw and sanded them to size. At one point I actually thought, I am not going to be able to do this. And me and my big mouth, I had already told my daughter wh...

My First Rocking Horse #4: Delivery

2682 days ago by Dan Lyke | 6 comments »

When my nephew was asked if he wanted to sit on the horse, he promptly sat down on the deck below the horse. He was reluctant to be all the way up high on it. Eventually, my sweety coaxed him up on the back. It’ll be too big for him for a few years, though. So we had a good drive up the coast, a good drive back down, some cool adventures along the way, got home, and then life got interesting. I don’t know how much woodworking time I’ll have over the next year, I j...
