Just finished another rocker this time I used 8/4 lace wood, I purchased the wood at Burlington exotic wood and I’m very happy with the quality of the lumber.

The wood was great to work with which I did’t know how it would be as this is my first experience with it, I will say lot’s of fine dust!

These pictures are just before wiping of the second coat of 3 part finish

I used walnut for the plugs and walnut in the rockers as a highlight

Beautiful rocker. You did a great job. The lacewood is really nice and such a nice looking wood. It reminds me somewhat of leopardwood. What type of finish are you using? I noticed you said a 3 part finish.

Paul, YOU are the man!!!!!!!!!!!! That is the best version of Maloof I have seen. Maybe it is the wood used, but a very fine work. I wish I could do that. IT IS BEUTIFUL.

You know Paul, these Maloof inspired chairs are getting to be like Adirondack chairs and end grain cutting boards. Way beyond my skill level nonetheless. But you have managed to take the style and with the unique beauty of the wood you chose, raise the form to a new level. Well done. I’m guessing this one’s for a client though because who could afford that much lacewood, right? Well, maybe for a good mother or something. lol

Best,
