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...
Just uploaded a new walk through video of the shop and on going projects…... Yes you guessed it rocking chairs! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLXuGlxIBUk
I have had the idea to film in POV style for a while now, this is my first attempt. This video is basically pure raw footage, I will expand on this style of filming if there’s interest from my viewers, so please let me know in the comments below. Especially what you would like to see! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wwxQR2_zB8
Part 2 of my chair build—based on Hal Taylor’s plans. With the seat glued up, it was time to flatten it, trim it to size, and cut the notches for the back legs. In terms of flattening, I just wanted it flat enough to get square edges when I cut it on the table saw. I didnt need a perfect surface since it was going to be carved out and shaped later. To cut the 3”x3” back leg notches, I clamped the seat to my miter gauge that had a tall sacrificial board ...
I’ve been wanting to build a Maloof style rocker for about as long as I’ve been a woodworker (about 4 years I think)... I always put it off thinking that my skills werent there yet (still think that). I decided I’d wait until my wife and I were expecting our first child, and then I’d take the plunge and build one. Well, here we are. I need to have the chair done by Oct 5 :). So, my other project is going to have to wait (Arts and Crafts Dining Table). I started...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVXuM_-mQIs In the video I walk through my fine wood working shop while discussing the projects I have on the go. I’m typically building dining chairs, bar stools or rocking chairs. I also teach a 1 on 1 course where we both build a beautiful rocking chair! Happy new year!
Follow along as I walk through the wood shop during my 1 on 1 build your own rocking chair course. This is Day 3 of the 10 day course I offer. 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.
