  1. Today we finished the concept of the media room. This is going to be a long one. I am expecting this to take me at least 2-3 months. The whole room including a major portion of the ceiling will be in black walnut. This is one of my favorite woods to work with so it’s going to be fun along with more than a few challenges. It includes making and hanging three doors, one of which she wants inlayed. The cabinet doors will be a combination of black walnut and Birdseye Maple. I am starting with the cabinet that houses the TV and going from there. Paul
  2. So last weekend we worked on the boat and spent time with our grandsons. I delivered the top made last week to one and returned the toy F1 car to the other. Silly me. There is no reasoning with three year olds. I didn’t get the manual that says definitely don’t give one grandson a top and not the other ! What a circus. So we are returning this weekend to continue working on the boat and deliver another top. Walnut and maple again. I gave this one a brass tip to make it a little different. I will turn the launcher tomorrow and quell the uprising this weekend. Paul

    Walnut Rocker Seat

    From the album: Walnut Rocking Chair

    Before the finish is applied the chair is sanded to 800 then buffed to 1200 Abralon. The chair is already shining before the first finish goes on.
  4. From the album: Walnut Rocking Chair

    The joints in these chair is known as the "money shot". They are really pleasing to the eye, but in the manufacturing process of the leg to seat joints, the process can go from great to disaster in milliseconds, and the project could be ruined. I am happy when the seat joint operations are completed! In this image, the first coat of finish is not applied yet, the sheen you see is purely from sanding through the grits, up to a 1000 abralon pad.
  5. I want to thank @lew and @Gerald for their contributions to our "Black Walnut" wiki page. I put out the call in our Monday topic this past week for Black Walnut project images to be used in our wiki, and Lew and Gerald came to the rescue, thanks so much guys! Have a look at our updated page with some great walnut projects now in the page, thanks to these two gents. Wiki | Black Walnut THEPATRIOTWOODWIKI.ORG Wiki
  6. How does black walnut change its color. some of the wood will be back walnut as we know it dark, and then some of it is as white as pine? Preston
  7. From the album: Walnut Rocking Chair

    The seat is really fun to shape in these rockers, you get to make a ton of sawdust!
  8. · I built this about 20 years ago and I finally took a picture or two. It is made out of pine and black walnut. The wood had been in my shop for several years and was dry. I know you are not supposed to join soft woods and hard woods but I did and they have not contracted or expanded. After 20 years I think I'm ok. I like to build things without plans so I can always get it right! It is 25" high by 21' wide by 17' deep. Preston
  9. Medallion -none of the work was in veneer it was all 13/16'' stock.. the medallion surround is hand hewn black walnut... (scorped)... TS and miter trimmer for the primary tools...
  10. From the album: Walnut Rocking Chair

    This is a Black Walnut chair I built from a wonderful set of Hal Taylor plans for this style of rocking chair. To see Hal's plans please go to Rocking Chair University. This image was taken before final sanding.

    Walnut Rocker Finish

    From the album: Walnut Rocking Chair

    The grain really pops in these chairs when the first coat of oil is applied.
  12. From the album: Sewing needle cases.

    Fire starter in the middle with 2 flanking sewing needle cases
  13. and very little got done. Brought two 1 x 10 pine boards to the shop, since they were stored against the wall of the house. Cut them to a length needed. Ripped one right down the middle. Ripped just over 5" out of the second board. Used a jointah plane to ease an edge or two And the chest now has a bottom. Screwed to the cleats along the outside edges. Center plank is just held by a pair of screws, one on each end. Had the box clamped to the bench for a little clean up Well I used this to clean up after a belt sander leveled things a bit. Then a block plane for some detail work.....Then set up a drill press with a special bit Cuts a tapered plug. Chunk of scrap wood is Black Walnut. I used a screwdriver tip to pop the plugs out.A littlte glue into the counter bore, and bang a plug home. Later, after the glue has set for awhile, a block plane to trim these down Lets see, seven to a corner, and there are four such corners,, might take a bit. BTW: Beltsander don't work very well trimming the plugs down. Gouges the wood, and burns the plug. Just about any sharp plane will do. Stay tuned....
