Randy that looks like a great class, I have been collecting the tools and making the fixtures needed to build one of the world famous Sam Maloof rocking chairs, its been fun and I can’t wait to really start building it. It will be my first project in my new shop so I am very excited. Thanks for the inspiration.
Question: What is it that you use to make the rocker bending gig?

Hi Sandhill!!

Thanks..I am currently teaching another class at my So. Cal workshop now..and having it entirely filmed with each step to show how the rocker goes together and how its done..

The form you see in the picture was MDF glued together..and the profile of the leg bandsawed out and sanded smooth..I use the mating part of the form to act as a clamping cauliflower.. it works quite well..

I will be making another announcement for another class soon

Thanks..Randy
