A Krenov Inspired Cabinet on Stand in Six Days (pix)

07-06-2008 04:56 AM by John Fry | 19 comments »

A veneered curly koa, James Krenov style cabinet on a sculpted, curved leg, stand. The doors are bookmatched with a strip of sapwood down the middle. The turned Gaboon ebony handles accent the koa’s colors. This was a joint project with expert woodworker and friend, Jack Hutchison from Houston TX. and it was built in six days. But first I want to thank everyone who visited and responded to my last blog; A very large walnut and walnut burl credenza I’ve admired Jack’...

This was my first rocking chair I made, I built it about 3 months ago, actually did a blog on here about the build but never actually posted up final pictures actually this is the blog…..lol I’ve since built 4 more chairs out of various woods, this one was built using wormy soft maple that my brother had cut about 10 years ago from the bush behind my house. I gave this chair to my grandparents, as I didn’t fell that I could sell my first one also the ” quality &#...

Sculpted Juniper picnic table #5: Almost done!!

08-28-2012 02:34 PM by junipercanyon | 9 comments »

This project is really finishing nicely. I just need to mill out boards for the benches, and add some center supports to flatten out the top a little better. Very happy with it so far. I started finishing it with Teak oil, but I don’t like the yellowing affect it has on the juniper….any suggestions on what would be a good outdoor finish?

My Maloof lowback #13: I'm calling this one finished - except for the finish

03-24-2013 11:26 AM by Antti | 9 comments »

I swear I’ll never do a sculpted piece of furniture again… the volume of sanding is staggering! This one is about one working day ahead of its younger sister, but I wanted to get something finished, so I have been allocating my efforts only to this one. Just slap the Osmo oil wax on this, and take it upstairs for the ooh’s and aah’s ? The plan was to use the “original formula” for the finish, but they don’t sell that stuff in Finland, and the US...

Juniper "Ribbon" table #1: Rough shape...from limb to art!

09-24-2012 03:04 PM by junipercanyon | 7 comments »

I say this with every project, and I’ll say it again with this one….this is my favorite!! This table is going to stretch my sculpting skills to new limits. I am going to try sculpt the top of this table down into the base limb so that it will provide good support, and also sculpt the limb into a twisted “ribbon” shape. These photos show the rough idea of how the pieces will sit with each other, and the start of sculpting the “ribbon” base limb. The top will...

Reclaimed Glory #14: An Ode to Power Carving & Sculpting Reclaimed Furniture

04-17-2014 10:34 PM by palaswood | 1 comment »

I have been dragging home interesting logs I come across in the woods from time to time over this past year, and I have amassed a sizeable little pile (ok not little at all!). Thing is, without a huge bandsaw or a chainsaw mill, processing the wood into lumber is a task hardly worth the enormous effort. I know, I’ve tried. I recently looked into power carving for the first time as a quick and creative way to make use of my …inventory, lets call it.With an investment of onl...

Time lapse Woodworking #1: Attaching a coffee table storage shelf with dowels

12-14-2010 03:55 AM by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

In this time lapse, i’m building a trestle coffee table from Walnut. At this point i’m attaching the underside storage to the top of the table. The underside of the top and entire storage shelf has been sanded up to 500 grit and buffed with a wool pad to burnish and clean out the pores in the wood. What a shine one can achieve from just bare wood, its amazing, silky smooth! First I measure and drill the holes for the 2’’ x 3/8’’ dowels that will attach...

Sculpted Juniper picnic table #2: Test top done, now for the custom table

07-23-2012 04:56 PM by junipercanyon | 5 comments »

Well, all the great compliments from the replacement top (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/68932) have helped inspire me to keep my motivation up to build a full custom table. So I intend to keep in progress pics through the entire build of this table. I hope you enjoy following along! Step 1: Mill out the boards from these ugly logs. Step 2: Lay out the boards how I want them to fit together, and then cut to length. I went with 7’-1” on this project as it worked well...

Concept Sketch: President Barak Obama Carved Bust Top Political Figure Collector Cane

09-04-2008 10:57 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 13 comments »

Another short Blog entry to post a concept sketch of a President Barak Obama Walking Cane. This cane design has been inspired by several historical examples of Election and Political Figure “Bust Top” collector walking canes. I have another design I’m working on the concept sketch for with an “Abraham Lincoln Bust Top” walking cane, and he’s deceased, and so that can not be determined as “politics”, just art. Ha. thanks for looking,Mark ...
