This is a test of a jimmy rigged lazy susan mounted to a slow speed gear motor.I always have ideas running through my head about how to share my custom wooden rocking chairs and other pieces, this is one of the less refined ideas, but i’m happy my idea is going to work out well once I get the bugs worked out. Hopefully soon I will build a dolly for the camera so the camera can move while the chair rotates. This example is using a Walnut with Ebony plugs custom wood rocking chair, ...
We start by showing the Kutzall carbide grinding disc we use to do most of the sculpting on our rocking chairs, it is attached to a basic angle grinder. We then go to work, the arms start about 2’’ thick and also have a 1.5’’ thick transition block at the front leg arm joint. We want to remove the chunky look and be left with smooth flowing lines that your eye and hand will want to explore. I then switch to a kutzall grinding burr attached to a Fordom grinding s...
Well we had a long day in the shop, working on a custom rocking chair which is really coming along great. Joel sanded and burnished the back braces up to a wonderful glow, showing off the extreme curly figure they have. But that’s another story, here I took another time lapse of me applying a coat of our 3 part finish to a trestle coffee table and the top to a dining table we’ve been working on. The finish is a mixture of equal parts of Raw Tung oil, Boiled Linseed oil and P...
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. Just hook it up to a computer, in our case a Mac Book Pro use Nikons Camera control software. The software has time lapse feature built right with every setting you would need to adjust. 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 ...
Here I am, finally on Lumberjocks! I thought I would introduce myself by sharing a video of me working on my current project, a Shaker style six drawer dresser in walnut. This is becoming my typical style of woodworking over the last year. I mill lumber in the barn with a jointer, a planer and a table saw and then move to the Cottage Workshop where I slow things down, using hand tools and traditional techniques to join parts together. This ia also my first time-lapse video made with the Gawke...
(This is the first post here, but a continuation of a series started at my personal blog at tenonandspline.com/blog) I’m not what you would call a “neat freak.” However, I do try to keep things generally organized and find it near impossible to work in a cluttered shop. Not only do I find it technically difficult to work in an unorganized mess – I find it hopelessly depressing as well. Consequently, when the shop is cluttered I will typically avoid doing any woodwor...
