All right, so I admit I am going to be terribly lazy with this one.
I think there are five or six different rocking chairs here. They are made out of predominately Myrtlewood, but there is some maple, padauk, sapele, walnut and koa thrown in there too. I started making rocking chairs about 15 years ago. I haven’t made one for about 3 years now and it would be fun to make another and see where I went with it. I am currently working on two lounge chairs and after that I have a list of goodies and rockers aren’t on it yet. I like making chairs with wide slats in the back as I think they are comfortable. These are all very early chairs for me, but they turned out nice. I learned a lot by watching Maloofs video and that was a big start to making chairs for me so they have his influence there. As I have grown in woodworking knowledge I have started to find my own way with things, but I am sure his influence still is apparent in my work. So here is a bunch of pictures to look at.
