I recently took a Maloof Rocker class with Randy Child and Charles Neil. They were both kind enough to let me video the learning sections of the class. In this video, Randy discusses the requirements for prepping the front legs to integrate with the seat.

I have lots of video but most of it has high levels of noise. If there is interest given these restraints, I will post a few more.

As for the class itself, I really learned quite a bit about shaping wood which is the largest requirement for building the actual rocker.

More to come!

Hi Tim:
Yes, it would be nice to share more videos of the Chair build. I feel I know you from all the pictures & video that is on Charles Neil Web site. I will see him about July 12. It looked like you learn a lot about chair building in a short period. I bet you have looked at your videos many times already. (You will see my picture in the sugar chest class)

good job Tim, and if I may say, I have saw the videos from others and so forth, no one knows a Maloof any better than Randy, and not only the rocker just the basic wood sculpting, he is setting up a west coast class now, if you every wanted to build a Maloof rocker,,, Randy is the man !
