Free vidio class for Maloof style rocker.

10-27-2015 10:05 PM by bkap | 32 comments »

I am thinking of making a video of the classes I give about making the Maloof style rocker. I want to post it for free so any woodworker can learn the procedure. If they have my free text it will make things a lot easier. Now the question is do you Jocks think if would be a waste of time or not? I am 83 and would like to leave the info I have learned for the rest of you. If I do make the video I will have to get one of my grandchildren to help me. This stuff is just too confusing for me...

Sam Maloof style rocking chair class

10-12-2015 04:27 PM by bkap | 4 comments »

All you woodworkers,come out to Utah and build a Maloof style rocker with me. In one week you go home with the knowledge to make these rockers as well as taking home your own rocker. It will still need a lot of finish work, but all the joints and shapes will be there. I furnish the wood, text, patterns, jig and personal instructions. Any woodworker can do it, just one step at a time.

We’ve started work on each part of the chair from bent lamination for the back supports, coving the arms, carving the seat and of course the famous Maloof joinery. Also I take a look at a few pieces I’ve built in the past, some beautiful chairs and sculpted music stands.

Maloof Low Back Chairs #1: Rough up

01-18-2014 02:02 AM by Dave G | 2 comments »

The hard maple table displayed in my projects needs chairs. We have a small house and a small dining room. The chairs must slide mostly under the table out of the way. Another LJ displayed his low back chair and the idea was born! I bought Charles Brocks plans and video. I chose hard maple to match the table. Sure it’s hard. But once you’re grinding with carbide tools and sanding to sculpt it doesn’t matter much. I’m keeping track of my hours because I...

My Maloof lowback #13: I'm calling this one finished - except for the finish

03-24-2013 11:26 AM by Antti | 9 comments »

I swear I’ll never do a sculpted piece of furniture again… the volume of sanding is staggering! This one is about one working day ahead of its younger sister, but I wanted to get something finished, so I have been allocating my efforts only to this one. Just slap the Osmo oil wax on this, and take it upstairs for the ooh’s and aah’s ? The plan was to use the “original formula” for the finish, but they don’t sell that stuff in Finland, and the US...
