Sculpted Rocker, The Long Game

Recommended Posts

Maybe the tree wasn't happy about having a concrete wall next to it ?

I hope you get enough wood to build your rocker.  Read up on drying wood ! Sealing the ends very soon is important.

Should look amazing! I made some sculpted bar stools out of similar material last year and really like the way they turned out.

Great start, looks a lot like mine.

 

Having the history with the wood of taking it from stump to rocker will be a very slow, but cool experience.

Looks like a big split of heart and sap wood. Which are you planning on using?

I think you need to find a kiln and get this project going at a faster pace... we're burning daylight here. :D

It depends on how it looks dried. There is some spalting in the heartwood that could add character. I am pretty novice, especially building with hardwoods, so I don’t know what complications I may be in for.

Has anyone seen plans for a diy radio frequency vacuum kiln? That would speed it up. It should be a cheap and easy diy project as well. [emoji6]

I am planning to buy the new Laguna midi lathe if I can ever get one from a local store before they sell out again. So build a stand out of a couple of the smaller slabs. Nothing under 2” finished dimension. The grain looks really nice so I am looking forward to using it some more in the future. It is still not fully dry, but close enough for a shop stand.

I got the lathe this weekend and it looks awesome. The speed controller isn't working right though and Laguna is sending out a new part. I will probably do a thread about the lathe once I get it fully up and running.
