Tell us about yourself!
Thanks ! I added a strip of 1/4" hardwood to the rocker bottoms to alleviate that issue. My issue here at the cottage is rot....so I am thinking of adding a strip of PVC to the bottom of the rockers, arms or side panels of my chairs.Phil
They are available on my site www.plansinwood.com in mailed or digital formats.Phil
Only the painted wood is edge sanded....the top is antiqued, stained natural, urethaned and paint then only applied to the marks. That way wet sanding is only needed to leave the paint in the indents....then another layer of urethane to seal it in. This shelf is the same top style as the table.
Here you go !
Here is the lower position.
The complete chair is made from 3/4" stock, but many of my Customers use 1" or 5/4 for the front legs as well as the side panels.
Found the table and drawer pics to go with the comments below.
I was kept very busy back in the country craft days in the eighties with my distressed furniture, shelves and other items.....now it's all back and even better techniques. I like the steel brush idea. As well as the techniques above, I added "worm holes" with the stick shown. After adding the scratches and stain, I paint the indents with milk paint and sand to leave the paint so it looks like previously stripped wood. I also add a coat of hide glue after staining, then the paint will crackle like an antique piece. I do this with different color layers to replicate layers of paint over years of time. I will try to find my sample board to add a pic.
Yes...it's a 1 x 10....the panel just fits the finished 9 1/2" width.Phil
