Absolutely beautiful. Can I ask you about how many hours it took you? I’m considering trying one of these in the next year.

Actually, i don’t have a clue… It took me maybe three months working in the evenings, some times a couple of hours at weekends.

Dare I say, this is one of the nicest Maloof-inspired chairs I have seen. It fits my tastes exactly.

This is one of the nicest rockers I have ever seen You guys that build these have my undying respect. I think I have enough wood and tools to do this but I lack the talent! How hard are the plans/instructions to follow? I would love to try one.
