I recently received some curly maple (last week) and automatically knew what I was gonna turn it into. This is my version of a Maloof / Hal Taylor Rocker. The spindles are walnut and laminated like Hal’s but virtually all the shaping is closer to Maloof’s. The accent wood is walnut (as are the spindles), and everything else is curly maple. The grain in the chair is really exceptional, but I am not much of a photographer so you can just use your imagination I guess. I also shortened the rockers on this chair by just nocking off the flattened spot so the chair takes up less room in a house. Finished with 7 coats of Maloof oil.
