This is my flag ship rocker I call the ‘Crown Jewel’. Made of Claro gun- stock Walnut. I sold this one in LV sight unseen except in the newspaper. Custom saw the picture and called me to order same. Now that is the way I like to do business.
Looks like I will not be around too much longer so if anyone wants the FREE TEXT on how to build a Sam Maloof style rocketing chair they better hurry up and request same. I also have the full seminar text (70 pages) and full size patters at a giveaway price. See all this at kappelusa.com along with free videos on building these rockers.

This rocker is a real beauty and it displays a lot of nice details and fine craftsmanship.

The rockers are pieces of art….and they look very comfortable.

I’m unable to get the “order” buttons to do anything on your site.

I’ll send PM.

You’ve made some wonderful chairs Bill and certainly were instrumental in me building mine. Thanks for the info that you sent me last year.

I have talked to a programmer about the PayPal button for the ‘Full size Patterns’ not working which they say it will be repaired, so for now just double click on the ‘Text’ button both are the same price and I will know you don’t want two text therefore I will send the text and patterns. Easy fix and you don’t have to write a check and mail same.
