This is a rather wide seated Maloof Rocker made from Cherry. The rockers and the spindles are both laminated for extra strength. The accent wood is Walnut. The side table is also Maloof inspired. Both are finished with Maloof oil.

Beautiful pieces of furniture, great craftsmanship. Something to be proud of, and I’m sure the recipient for these will be very happy to get them.

Simply gorgeous! How much time did you spend in the construction of the great rocker?

Thank you all! Northwest I didnt keep track of time but I’d guess from 20- 25 hours on the rocker from start to finish.

Very nice work, you stated that you reinforced the rockers and spindles. I’m curious how you dealt with the extra seat width span and kept your build so elegant?

the rockers and spindles are 1/8” laminations which is much stronger than just a solid piece of wood (think plywood). as far as the seat goes i simply made the coopered boards wider then spread the spindles out just a bit. that way it still has the correct lumbar support and is still proportional.
