Beautiful work as usual Paul. Informative, well done video. Interesting comment about the flat rocker. Have you heard anything about that happening to some of Sam’s rounded rockers?

Not specifically talking about a Maloof rocker nor have I ever heard of any issues, just from what i’ve seen the local rockers and family heirlooms.

Another very educational and informative video. I drooled all over my keyboard while watching. You have some really nice ‘old iron’ in your shop and a spectacular view!
