You can stay home and try to figure things out for yourself (and make mistakes), or you can spend 4 days learning from Paul and Justin on how to do it right the first time! This four day course is jam packed with instruction, new skills, humour and great people. Paul, Justin and of course Aimee put off a top notch course and I'd highly recommend anyone who has an interest in building a Maloof style chair to look no further! I was so impressed with the bar stool course that I immediately signed up for the next rocking chair course. Great job Canadian Woodworks!!
Guitar Pick Stool - Template
Havnt built it yet. But have transferred the templates to wood. Very happy so far. Only slight confuaion about which piece os the top and which is the botton.
Planning to build a pair of these over the winter months along with a friend of mine who purchased the pick stool plans. We have cut our templates and made our jigs....soon to get started on some test joints before we ruin any good wood!
Love watching the videos. Now I just need to build one
Did this course in May 2019. It was very good and had a chance to see and try new things. The project we did was straight forward and it would be nice to have an advanced course for a larger item such as a river table in the future. The instructors were good and we had an opportunity to see all of the things available from these vendors.
Currently in the process of building my first chair. Plans are working as described. I’ll try and post a pick when I’m done
I’m working on my first stool. It is a beautiful design and end product. But there needs to be two more templates. One that lays out the taper on the legs. It ‘s very unclear to me at least exactly how that is laid out and if the proportion on the taper to the opposing curve is off, the whole leg is off. Also it would be very helpful to have some guide lines on sculpting the seat, like depth holes and their location to guide the sculpting. Also it is unclear why paul on the video cut a taper on the top of the leg before cutting the joint dado. Just some constructive suggestions.
looks good cant wait to get in the shop and build one.
Thank you for your attention to detail in following up . Having said that I did not recieve any instructions with my templates .
NICE SET OF TEMPLATES. EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO BUILD CHAIR.
Ordered templates came right away very pleased
Love my dining chair template an I cannot wait to start work on the first one. Had a small snafu with getting the correct set of plans I ordered. I emailed customer service and they had the problem fixed within 20 min and all late in the evening. Well done and good product. Would recommend Canadian Woodworks to anyone looking to tackle this type of project.
The plans for the template look great, they arrived here in Australia in just over a week from ordering on a weekend. There were no directions/order of tasks to perform, these were emailed on request the next day, great service. John
The plans are a great deal for those who already have good experience in the different woodworking techniques required to carry out the project.
Once the templates have been made, all the work must be completed without further indications; however the Canadian Woodworks YouTube channel can be used to profitably examine the various production processes.
I'm satisfied with my purchase and I'm glad I only bought some projects because I had the chance to customize some features.
Exactly as I had hoped it would be. Second purchase from Canadian Woodworks, but definitely not the last.
Thanks! Got access to the download immediately and received the hard copy plans in the mail a few day later. The plans look great and I can't wait to start on our new dining room chairs to go with the Live Edge Walnut table. Love the channel and your work is nothing short of amazing.
Easy to download and use the templates. Built mine out of white ash, fun build.
The plans look good as yet I have not made templates from them yet.
No instructions/order of processes were included, however they were emailed to me immediately on my request. I am thrilled with the service received.
The seat dimensions are shown as 19x 19.5 but the template measures 18.5 x 19.5. How should I deal with that. Also do you have any videos on building chair #9. I m a little confused from the instructions on how the arms attach to the back and front leg. Thanks.
Very nice plywood template with some layout line. I'm very impressed with the speedy service. I'm looking forward to constructing this stool. It will be my first Maloof style joint!
Purchased the stool template and due to a technical glitch, the item was dispatched by seamail rather than airmail. Contacted Aimee and Paul and couldn't have asked for better service. They sent out a new template by airmail and it arrived today. They kept me informed as to what happened and how to get the new template. Really looking forward to the build. Many thanks to the team at Canadian Woodworks.
Tremendously easy purchase process of a quality project. I’m happy to send my money to such a customer centered business. Thanks
