Double lacewood rocking chair #1: Day number one - Do a bunch of work!

06-24-2010 05:31 AM by Canadian Woodworks | 9 comments »

So i’ve been building the Sam Maloof, Hal Taylor inspired rocking chair to the point that about all I do is build these chairs and I love it! I’ve decided to market them locally as well as on the internet, so far i’ve done small, medium and large in soft maple, walnut and lacewood or a combo of walnut / lacewood. I want to be able to offer different rocking chairs as well as chairs and tables but let’s not get ahead of our selves here. Anyways i’ve decided ...

A quick 2x4 chair

07-19-2009 04:04 AM by Gary Fixler | 14 comments »

On July 3rd I threw together a chair to bring to the 4th party the following day. I decided to use up some scrap 2×4s. I had no plan, no chair experience, and about 5 hours time in which to make it, so I just sort of winged-it, inventing as I went. Here’s the test-fit of the cut pieces for which I used my miter saw and band saw. It looked somewhat chair-like, at least. I used countersunk deck screws and glue. I banged pieces around in the clamps to get everything exac...

Much better tutorial for my 2x4 outdoor furniture

04-24-2013 07:44 PM by JSB | 2 comments »

A few people have pointed out that my outdoor arm chair video tutorial is extremely boring. After watching it again, I couldn’t agree more. So for those who would like to build a set of these I have updated my site with a step by step tutorial with SketchUp diagrams for each step. This way you can build one without being bored out of your mind watching me! For those who are interested click here http://jayscustomcreations.com/2013/03/13/build-2-outdoor-arm-chairs-and-a-side-table/

Desk Chairs #1: Have a seat and let me tell you a story

12-10-2017 01:53 PM by EarlS | 3 comments »

Chair – a seat with a back on which one person sits, typically having four legs. Since Adam and Eve wandered around the Garden of Eden, humans have needed something to sit on other than the ground. To my mind, chairs evolved from rocks, logs, stumps, or whatever happened to be available into something with legs and a seat that was more functional, a stool. From there, some bright person discovered that the back legs could be lengthened and the chair was born. Everything since then...

Time lapse Woodworking #11: Rocking Chair - Back Brace Bent Lamination

02-22-2011 05:11 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 10 comments »

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...

One Man's Junk - Chair #1: The inspiration and the junk

07-01-2008 11:58 PM by Zuki | 8 comments »

As most people have stated this project is going to be a very interesting one. Unlike the Winter Awards and my very secretive Project X . . . with this project I will be an open book. What I plan to make is a chair (as DW claimed my other one) to use at my computer. Here is my inspiration. We have had this office chair kicking around for years. It is still very comfortable and the proportions are great even though it is in very rough shape. And here is the junk . . . the ...

Repairing a Swiss chair...and building a new one

05-27-2012 01:44 PM by slackeng | 4 comments »

I have a patient buddy who is teaching me how to repair and build a Swiss chair. So far we have repaired the original. We are using poplar for the new chair; we have cut out the back, and built the seat. The next challenge is to figure out the multiple angles for the legs and cut the holes in the seat. Advice welcome!
