Children size Maloof

This chair was filled with a bunch of firsts. This is the first time I have worked with walnut, first time using a live edge slab, first time constructing a solid seat (one piece no joints) and most importantly first commissioned piece of work. Built this chair for a guy at work.

Second child sized maloof inspired that I have done (Hal Taylor plans). The chair construct gets easier with each one but the child sized chairs have their own level of difficulty due to the small size.

Not the best picture since it is dark out and had to shoot the pictures in my kitchen. Could have waited until morning but who can wait to post something.

Every time I see one of these rockers, I tell myself I’ll make one someday. A very nice job! Thanks for sharing.

I know what you mean about wanting to post something right away. I’ve got a few things sitting around that are almost done, but I can’t finish them right now.

Did you enjoy working with the walnut? It’s one of my favorites at the present time.

This rocker is certainly something to be proud of! Word is going to spread now that you’ve sold this one.

Well done!

I really enjoyed working with walnut. I have another chair medium sized started with walnut that I look forward to finishing.

I love walnut, you forget how nice it looks because you spend 100 hours with it unfinished and only a shot time with it finished then it’s gone, and time to start another.
