Over the past year I have built like 20 some Maloof rockers but these two are a bit different. They are both originally dining chairs but I altered them a bit and fashioned on some rockers. The chairs are made primarily from tiger maple (the lowback is all tiger maple and the other has walnut accents). I messed with some filters on the first picture to try and show the amazing figure in the wood. I put the flat/ sloped arms (traditional maloof arms) on the higher chair and the regular sloped arms on the lowback. I know everyone has seen about 4000 Maloof rockers in their lifetime so I thought it would do ya some good to see an altered version of Sam’s iconic piece.
P.S. Don’t mind the jungle I refer to as my front yard.
