Hello Readers! Recently I had asked readers to suggest a few new projects for ideas for my blog, Pallet Craft! I did recieve two ideas and I will briefly describe them below, but if you would like to suggest more please do so by commenting below! 1. From Mike on LumberJocks.com. Mike suggested a Maloof Rocking Chair. I think this is an amazing idea that would be a great undertaking. In honor of Sam Maloof who shares my birthday (January 24th, 1916 – May 21, 2009) I will und...
I have been waiting for parts to actually do the hanging, but over the last couple weeks, I got the frame ready and had time to get the video update put together. Check it out:
Hi everyone. Thought I would put out a feeler and see if anyone was interested in another Arizona Picnic/Get together? This would be shooting for the last weekend in Febuary, Saturday, the 27th. Probably at the WoodWorkers Source in Tempe. The same person owns the north store and they treated us real good last November. If interested please post or send me a PM and I will try and get it all organized again. I know there are several LJ’s in the valley and others here getting away from th...

I just finished cutting the second inside panel for this treasure box series #2. This is for the inside of the lid. Some of the pieces are a bit small, I have a tendency to go to far… It is cut on the marquetry chevalet. The piece by piece process require to be precise The pieces are laid out in éclaté according to their final position I really like those detail pictures The 2 panels are done cutting, ready for shading in hot sand ...

Took me a little while to do the steel work on the jig. Have to make the somewhat C-clamp with push block. Cutting threaded bars and looking for the nuts. Shaping the push blocks (made from ebony) become tiresome after making 16 pieces. These are made from scraps.

This is a fun weekend project and great for gifts. Check it out. If you guys want the pdf plan for it e-mail me. http://youtu.be/_ZP9W92mnvY
Here’s the carcass installed. I oiled it the same as the bench. Sanded it a little to knock off the fuzz. I didn’t finish it all out as this is just a box for storage. Next is to make the door for the left side and drawers for the right The vise is completed. It has about a 3” throat because the dog block thickness is also about 3”. It probably should be closer to the left edge, but I don’t plan to be cutting anything – got a chop saw for that. Mo...
Howdy, The chair arms have been formed into a nice rolled shape and they are ready to accept padding. This will be fun and it’s easier than you may be thinking.

Foam, 1 to 2 inches thick usually. It Gives a nice uniform shape. but it can be compressed to nothing. When Foam begins to deteriorate, it turns to...
