My first desk chair after all the Maloof style rocking chairs I have made. I took the style from Maloof ‘side’ chair. Made of Argentine Mesquite. The center board is the first Albino color I have seen in my stock of Argentine Mesquite.

Woah that’s so beautiful, I like how glossy it is too, it gives it that clean, sharp look!

Nice change of pace. Looks good. To increase the Maloof genre maybe the next one could had a reverse in the arc for the castor support? just thinking about his tables and how he supported them.

Very cool! That mesquite makes me wish I lived in the southwestern US. Mesquite from Texas looks pretty similar to this, from what I’ve seen. Up here in Pennsylvania I have to make do with the more traditional hardwoods – walnut, oak, maple, and such.

You LumberJocks are just too nice to an old woodworker.

I got the Argentine Mesquite years ago and filled my bar with it as well as Claro and Bastogne Walnut. I can’t seem to find the Argentine Mesquite listed for sale anymore. The Mesquite is all dimensioned and really good stuff, much of with Tiger type grain.

I did order some Texas Honey Mesquite from a guy in Texas, but he sent me a bunch of bad quality stuff, good for fire wood only.

Beautiful, Bill! Good to see you building and posting! It looks really comfy, and the finish is eye candy. Does it swivel/raise/lower? Is it to have casters? Where did you get the hardware? Keep ‘em coming, please! Thanks for sharing.
