Reclaimed Glory #14: An Ode to Power Carving & Sculpting Reclaimed Furniture

85 days ago by palaswood | 1 comment »

I have been dragging home interesting logs I come across in the woods from time to time over this past year, and I have amassed a sizeable little pile (ok not little at all!). Thing is, without a huge bandsaw or a chainsaw mill, processing the wood into lumber is a task hardly worth the enormous effort. I know, I’ve tried. I recently looked into power carving for the first time as a quick and creative way to make use of my …inventory, lets call it.With an investment of onl...

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

474 days ago 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...

Juniper "Ribbon" table #2: Progress photos

654 days ago by junipercanyon | 4 comments »

Here is what I got done last night. The top is very close to done being sculpted down into the base, and the “ribbon” sculpting is looking pretty cool. Its a pretty stable table already, not much more to do for leveling it all out. So far I’m pretty happy with it.

Juniper "Ribbon" table #1: Rough shape...from limb to art!

655 days ago by junipercanyon | 7 comments »

I say this with every project, and I’ll say it again with this one….this is my favorite!! This table is going to stretch my sculpting skills to new limits. I am going to try sculpt the top of this table down into the base limb so that it will provide good support, and also sculpt the limb into a twisted “ribbon” shape. These photos show the rough idea of how the pieces will sit with each other, and the start of sculpting the “ribbon” base limb. The top will...

Sculpted Juniper picnic table #5: Almost done!!

682 days ago by junipercanyon | 9 comments »

This project is really finishing nicely. I just need to mill out boards for the benches, and add some center supports to flatten out the top a little better. Very happy with it so far. I started finishing it with Teak oil, but I don’t like the yellowing affect it has on the juniper….any suggestions on what would be a good outdoor finish?

Sculpted Maloof inspired Rocking Chairs #2: Fitting leg joints and slow progress

716 days ago by Ehren | 0 comments »

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...

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

718 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...

Time lapse Woodworking #1: Attaching a coffee table storage shelf with dowels

1305 days ago by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

In this time lapse, i’m building a trestle coffee table from Walnut. At this point i’m attaching the underside storage to the top of the table. The underside of the top and entire storage shelf has been sanded up to 500 grit and buffed with a wool pad to burnish and clean out the pores in the wood. What a shine one can achieve from just bare wood, its amazing, silky smooth! First I measure and drill the holes for the 2’’ x 3/8’’ dowels that will attach...
