This chair is made of cherry with wenge accent. The Finish is Danish oil. I like the way this chair turned out but I wish I had more of a choice of cherry wood. There was only six boards on the left on the pallet.

Very Nice Chair. I recently attended a one day workshop given by Mike Johnson. Mike worked with Sam and is one of the three that plan to carry on his legacy at Maloof Woodworking. It was very interesting and I really did not fully appreciate the amount of work that goes into one of these chairs. Ken is right. You are a craftsman. Many of us could not or do not have the patience to tackle a project like this. It was unbelievable to me the amount of hours, patience and skills it takes to accomplish a project like this. Job well done.

That is beautiful William. I’m going to try to make one after the first of the year out of Black Walnut. If that turns out I will then make one out of Cherry. When you started this project was your wood a full 8/4, mines 1 7/8.

Hey William,

This is GREAT work, and your 5th one.

Your profile says you like photography and woodworking, why no blog ???

I think that ALL of us could learn from a master….

Beautifully done! I LOVE the tiger maple and this looks like a VERY sturdy rocking chair. I can see you really put a lot of love in your work.

I would love to make one – and would really appreciate if you can give us a how too…especially on any issues you had to work out and shortcuts you learned while you made your chairs. They are excellent by the way…..I have been fixing several old chairs…one almost a complete reconstruction….but it would be great to start from the begining and make one of my own….I am a great fan of Maloofs style…he will be sorely missed.

Good thing there wasn’t any more wood on the pallet because I don’t think you could have selected any better. I love the look of the Maloof style rockers because of their sculptured look.
