This is my second finished chair so I’ve learned a lot from the first one!
Jigs and Templates were all built already saved so much time, I did decide to make the swinging device to cut the head rest which works fantastic btw
2 weeks build time or 50 hours in total down from like 150 for the first one, i’m now on to my third and loving every minute of building these chairs.
I must say Sam Maloof designed an amazing style which Hal has really made his own especially on the build techniques ( coping the arms , flexiable back braces, coopered head rest, and the use of adder blocks )
The instruction he provides is top notch!
This one is sold and so is my next one so I have absolutely no complaints about anything right about now.
Oh one tip I do suggest is cutting the rocker and back brace lambs on the band saw as yield is almost doubled compared to ripping on the table saw, and much less dust safer also
