Maloof`s rocking chair. Made from ash. Actually when I started working on this chair, I didn’t believe it’s gonna be successful. Because of that, I chose the cheapest hardwood – ash. This project thought me a lot, and despite all the mistakes, I am pretty satisfied with the result.

Ash may be cheaper than some other hardwood but I really love its character.
This chair looks extremely comfortable, this is great work !

That Chair ROCKS! yeah corny but had to say it, great work with the sculpted joinery, it takes some guts to attempt Maloofs style and you should be very satisfied with the results, it’s an awesome piece of work.

You did a very good job and you deserve to be proud of it. Hal Taylor saysful that you will be successful on your first chair, so pick good wood. The ash looks good to me also.

Good job on your chair – Beautiful. I love the ash. Did you use plans? If so, where did you purchase the plans if you don’t mind me asking. What finish did you use?
