Walnut Leopardwood rocking chair #1: My first Rocker from Hal Taylor's plans

11-14-2011 05:55 AM by mbs | 4 comments »

My daughter is pregnant and I though I surprise her with a rocker for her first born. The rocker will be made of leopardwood and walnut. I got 8/4 ash for the laminate forms. I’ll have about 6 hours a week to work on it so it will take most of the winter. I haven’t ever made a rocker so I bought the plans from Hal Taylor and I’m already glad I didn’t try it on my own. Day oneI bought some 1/2” baltic birch for the chair patterns, cut them on the bands...

A Week At Hal Taylor's Rocking Chair University

11-28-2008 04:53 PM by TedM | 6 comments »

In September I had the good fortune to spend a week at Hal Taylor’s Rocking Chair University. Rocking Chair U gives you the chance to work with Hal in the building of one of his world famous rockers. The week I visited he was building a prototype of a new, smaller rocker that was based on a chair that he had built years ago. This was a week like none other! From the beginning to the end I learned so much. Not only about rocking chairs but woodworking itself. Hal is a great inst...

Maloof rocking chair class question

01-25-2012 05:00 AM by bkap | 6 comments »

I am considering offering a new special for those who would like to take my Maloof-style rocking chair class. After talking to a number of woodworkers, I have come up with a “class bundle” offer for a week of instruction on rocking chair science. If at least six (6) woodworkers sign up for any week-long (5 days) “class bundle,” then, by a drawing, one of those woodworkers will receive that “class bundle” for FREE. Included in the five-day (Monday t...

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

06-03-2012 02:24 AM 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.

Time lapse - Hand rubbed oil finish

12-08-2010 04:22 AM by Canadian Woodworks | 15 comments »

We decide to set up our Nikon D-80 on a tripod to make a time lapse video. I have done a bunch of reading, how to’s and what not regarding time lapse with a Nikon.

We setup the camera to take a picture every 5 seconds, then into Quicktime Pro at 15 frames per second. Anyways check it out, I think ...
