This Maloof style rocking chair was made to fit a customer’s specifications. She liked the ‘Ranch’ front legs and the detail on the front of the arm rest as well as the rounded seat bottom.
This is my least expensive rocker using my least expensive wood. This Argentine Mesquite is two and half time stronger than Oak. It takes a finish almost like glass. I love working this species of wood especially when it shows off its exceptional grain. I never know when a Tiger Striping or some other variation will occur. It is best seen on the seat pictures. The ‘Balance’ is about average and the Headrest is a bit larger because of the customers liking. The vertical orientation of the wood in the Headrest shows off the gain as well.
If you haven’t made one of these rockers yet, get to it. I offer ‘Free’ text sufficient to make a rocker. See my web site kappelusa.com for details.
