I am adding new pictures in hopes I have done better with my photography. It looks like these pictures will show the finish as I wanted in my first post. It not please let me know and I will try again.

Let me repeat that this Maloof finish is so good it has lasted over 15 years without any toughup, only dusting. Learn how to apply this finish to your projects, email me for the free text at bill@kappelusa.com.

Tlhnaks for the nice comments, I do hope this has been of some help.

Notice this is one of my old styles rockers without the ‘Ranch’ front leg. I had extra wood so I made the runners from on piece instead of laminating them. The holidays I just filled with T88 epoxy, as Sam Maloof says “epoxy is a good filler”. I did put black paint in the epoxy as I usually do. It does have the ‘Crown’ Headrest which comes in handy especially while reading.

The Texas Honey Mesquite changes color, over time, from an orange tint to this more subdued or neutral color. Like I say this rocker is over fifteen years old so the color has neutralized out.

The blended joints and overall smoothness of these rockers have always impressed me, fine work!
