« Part 59: Sculpted Rocking Chair - Seat Joinery Part 60 of The Craftsman's Path series Part 61: Sculpted Rocking Chair - Shaping the Seat »

Last time I worked on the seat joinery. This time I complete the Maloof Joint by performing joinery on the front and rear legs of the rocking chair. There are some complication due to the fact that the rear legs need to cant at a six degree angle. Take a look at this post to see the details on how this is solved. Thanks for reading!

Thanks for the post Mark. Seems like the rocker is coming along nicely. I just started a rocker myself – your blog is partly to blame! I’m sure I’ll be asking for some help – have pity on me!

Seriously I think your rocker is coming along famously. I can’t wait to see how it ends up.
