Maloof inspired rocking chair made out of 8/4 cherry. Used Hal Taylor’s plans to build. First time building small sized version, previously built medium, large and child sized rocking chairs. Built for a potential customer from a recent arts show. Took 1 month nights and weekends.

It was woth it, you’ve built a really great chair. thanks for sharing.
