Cherry Maloof inspired rocker.

Used the help and guidance of Hal Taylor’s book and plans to complete the chair. This is my 4th rocker and 2nd Maloof. Chair will be a Christmas gift for my niece. Construction is very similiar to an adult sized Maloof except I choose to use 6 back supports instead of 7 and used 6/8 lumber instead of 8/4. Also tried to highlight a few knots that I found in the lumber.

Nice job, about how big is that? Did you scale down the full size plans?
