Soon, I will be releasing a documentary on the evolution, history and the making of a Rocker Cradle. Although I’d love to take credit for the original concept, the idea was actually a bit before my time, circa 1700’s.

Hope you enjoy the clip…

Scott,

Very good!

Looks like you spend many hours with your Rasps… Ever get boring?
Do you frequently change to other projects in different stages of production to avoid boredom?

Yes… when it’s all done and LOOKS SO GOOD, it is worth the effort.

I guess you use Super Good rasps?

Thank you.

So this will be a documentary opposed to a How-To video? Either way can’t wait to get the DVD. When will it be released?

Thanks everyone.

Although the video isn’t technically a “How-To,” it does show the progression of me building a Rocker Cradle. Anyone who has built one of my Maloof Inspired Elegant Rockers and Bar Stools will see what’s involved.

I do get a lot of requests for Templates, so they will be made available.

This would certainly be for the advanced woodworker, however.

Scott, I have several of your DVDs, templates, Marketing Ideas and Strategies for Woodworkers. I have followed your website for several years and I’m truly a fan of yours. I have always been interested in your Rocker Cradle (and your BEAUTIFUL cradle). I noted your Rocker Cradle DVD on your website a few nights ago. I’m assuming if we have the DVD and templates for your Classic Rocker, and have the DVD and templates of the Rocker Cradle when it is available one would have all of the needed information to make the Rocker Cradle – Not considering skill and tools.

Thanks for posting and let us know when the Rocker Cradle will be available.

I am looking forward to this series, ran into the video by accident.

I hope that you’ll add a little narrative about the history of the

rocker craddle. This is real american folk art. The above video sample

is very tastful.
