Jayne's Rowboat Rocker #1: Gotta Start Someplace

12-14-2010 05:04 AM by captkerk | 2 comments »

This will probably be a pretty short blog, but wanted to share some progress of the next rocker I’m building. This one is for child #4, Jayne. It became tradition for each of my kids to get a rocker on their second Christmas and after plenty of thought about what to build, I finally decided on the boat. I have never built a boat so I hope the more nautically inclined folks out there cut me a little slack about my construction methods (or suggest a better method!). I want it to loo...

My second Rocking Chair from Hal Taylor Design - Walnut

05-14-2012 02:24 AM by mbs | 14 comments »

My mom went with me when I bought the wood for my first rocker and she realized I bought enough wood to make two rockers. She put her order in for one right then. Today is her birthday and mother’s day so I got started on the rocker. I don’t expect to get done until this winter because I don’t do much woodworking in the summer. 5/13/12 When I made my first rocker I cut enough rocker slats and back brace slats to make a second rocker. I got started by glueing up the ...

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...

My First Rocker #1: Preparing and planning

03-15-2009 08:27 PM by Betsy | 10 comments »

I’ve just about have my cabinet project done and since I have no interest in watching a finish coat dry I’m going to start getting all my things together to do my first rocking chair. I’ve looked a long time trying to find a chair that I thought I could do and that would still be a bit of a challenge. A Maloof chair seemed like too much to start with – those joints are amazing. Since I have no room for a rocking chair in my house – I thought I would use this as m...

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.
