This is my latest Maloof style rocker. It is smaller than my previous rocker since this one is made for my wife. It is made from Argentine Mesquite with accents of purple heart and turquoise. My wife will be happy that it is finished since I have been working on it here and there for months. Enjoy and let me know what you think.

Thanks. I used 6 coats of tung oil then 3 coats of wipe on poly mixed with howard feed-n-wax and finished with 1 coat of straight feed-n-wax.
