« Part 7: Applying oil/resin finish to curly walnut trestle coffee table Part 8 of In the wood shop today series Part 9: shaping chair legs on router table »

In this update of what I’m working on in my wood shop I give a quick walk through with a little discussion of the pieces.

I start by showing my most recent finished coffee table which has a book matched live edge curly walnut top with my maloof inspired trestle table base, all from solid 2’’ walnut.

I’m also working on a pair of my musicians chair, I’ve built a prototype and after lot’s of time sitting and playing guitar I’ve become satisfied with most of the details, I’m making a few adjustments to the new version but mostly cosmetic.

I have a large walnut rocking chair I’ve been working on for a little while, but I’m waiting for a part for my die grinder which I feel like I’ve been waiting forever!

I have a finished cafe table which turned out beautifully

Thanks again for having a look, always a pleasure to share.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the tour.

I have visited your site several time to admire your work.

I particularly like how you combine different woods in your rockers.
