Using a band saw I’m going to re-saw a solid Walnut board and 12’’ tall and 1.5’’ thick into 2 boards that will feature a beautiful grain book match. This board is to be used as the underside of a custom rocking chair seat. Check it out! Thanks for having a look always fun to share. (-:
This is a really quick video of what I’m working on in my custom one person wood working shop, I specialize in sculpted furniture but lately have started to get into some other types of woodworking. Thanks for having a look and I promise i’ll have some better videos soon, little more detail and longer.
Hey all! This is just a really short video of me re-sawing a piece of Cocobolo to be flipped open and book matched. This piece will be used in the center section of one of my Maloof inspired rocking chairs.
I recently started a major chair-building project and thought it might be fun to document the process as a series of blog entries. So, here we go… My BackgroundI started woodworking in seventh-grade woodshop about 38 years ago. I began pursuing this wonderful hobby in earnest in 1986 and was fortunate to catch the wave of woodworking information put out by magazines such as Woodsmith, Fine Woodworking, and American Woodworker. I collected a significant personal library of books and...
It’s been just over 3 months since I first posted this blog to fix the wife’s patio rocker. It was so daunting that I put it out in the yard and busied myself with a couple of new projects, but it kept haunting me. Every time I looked out on the back yard, it just looked back wondering when it’s time would come again. Well, guilt ridden I am reporting that I did get back, just in time for the Fall/Winter season. I had to re-manufacture four replacement pieces with round mortise/tenon j...
I’ve been chipping away at this project. Work is moving us in a month so any and all progress has been intermittent between getting ready to move. I may end up finishing this chair once I get my family moved in. I’ll be headed to CO Springs so if anyone knows some good hardwood and tool sources out that way let me know. After a couple of attempts, the best method for me is to rough shape all pieces between the band saw, shaper, and belt sander before fitting. Once fit and g...
Hey all, I’ve made another video this time I’ve just glued up the headrest of the current rocking chair I’m working on, I also discuss a little bit about the back braces. Hope you like it and again thanks for stopping by to have a look.
Here is another short video of what I’m up to, trying to stay busy which doesn’t seem to be a hard aspect in my life.Thanks for having a look. Paul
Hi all! Here’s a short video of what I’m currently working on in my wood shop.
For a while now I’ve wanted to build a rocking chair. I was finally tipped into starting the construction after my dad is retired after a thousand years and I found my wife trying to rock my kid to sleep in a folding chair in the nursery and so I’ve finally set aside my other projects and buckled down. In the purest form of logic I decided since I’ve set aside the time for one, might as well build two, just don’t tell the wife or father which one I make all the mistak...
