In this video I’m applying my 3 part hand rubbed oil/resin finish to a Canadian Black Walnut coffee table base. I talk more about what and amount of ingredients in my 3 part hand rubbed oil resin finish. I can’t call it mine though, pretty sure it’s been used by many many people. I initially read about it in a Sam Maloof book I think it was called Woodworker. Well I hope you enjoy the video, I finish it up by showing the curly walnut book matched live edge coffee table to...
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...
Time lapse application of our oil / resin finish on our A chair, hope you enjoy! To watch in HD click on the movie to be taken to youtube.
(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...
In this time lapse video I am gluing up 4 flexible back braces for a custom wooden rocking chair. A back brace is built using 4 layers each layer being about 2.2mm thick, the top or front layer is Birdseye Maple the rest are Walnut. This chair will be Black Canadian Walnut thus the the Birdseye Maple will give a attractive and interesting contrast to the rest of the chair. We make sure to cut the fronts and backs from a single piece and keep everything in order so in the end we have a beautif...
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...
This is a time lapse video of me wiping on and off my 3 part hand rubbed oil / resin finish. This is the top to a solid walnut coffee table, the top is book matched live edge curly Canadian walnut. P.S I had fun with the music this time (-:
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...
Here is another video in our time lapse woodworking series, this time around I’m re-sawing a 13’’ 8/4 solid Canadian Black Walnut board about 33’’ long into 4 pieces that need to end up 3/8’’ thick. These will be the panels in a frame and panel center divider for a shelving unit we’re building for a display for a local store. First I throw on a new blade, I’m just using a 3/8’’ blade from our local band saw blade place cal...
Hi everyone, I’ve finally put together a small bit of footage from my daily activities in my wood working shop. I’ve been working on a Walnut and Bubinga home bar which is all done now, but still finishing up the live edge chair rail and wall paneling. At the same time I have 9 bar stools on the go needing to get shipped and deilvered soon. So there’s been some long hours in the shop this past month. In this video I’m making a rabbit on the chair rail to sit on top ...
