This is a Maloof inspired rocker made from bubinga and maple. The back spindles are laminated as are the rockers. The curvy arms are typically seen on a lowback chair but I was curious as to what a rocker would look like with them.

Gorgeous wood! The arms look really nice as long as they aren’t too low. Sam would be proud!

I can’t say enough good things about your newest rocker. Not that I find rockers.ever boring but other than wood selection they are all pretty much alike. NOT THIS ONE. FANTASTIC DESIGN ON THE ARMS. It is this type of deviation that inspires us all to think outside the box. Great job, thanks.
