This was a very satisfying project. I’d like to thank Knothead, Joe Davis and Paul of Canadian Woodworks for sharing information with me. I used Scott Morrison’s plans for this build. Besides being a fine woodworker, he is also a fine human being – helpful and supportive. Thanks Scott. Personally, I was glad I had done a few lowbacks before attempting the rocker. I’m fairly certain I would have given up if the rocker was my first piece. Thanks to all who share their knowledge and experience on this site. Finally, my gratitude to Sam Maloof for his generous and creative spirit. Here’s to Sam Maloof and black walnut.

I think building a Maloof style rocker is a major milestones for many woodworkers. Yours is beautifully crafted!

Great job! I love black walnut – I have two trees in my backyard and this is exactly what I have planned for them. I give them another 10 years while I hone my skills. Thanks for posting.

What a gorgeous piece of fine furniture. I’ve only done one and not nearly as beautiful as yours. You must be extremely proud. What a skill builder.
