Wow, amazing. I also checked out your Ash Rocking Chair YouTube video. I liked the music there better, DIO!

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.

hi very very nice love the dark wood you did a great job with the build congratulation it will be a family air loom it will be handed down from one generation to the other
i am siting writing this on the same rocker that i finished about 3 months ago the are great fun to build but a lot of sanding most of it by hand not my fervid thing to do but the end product is well worth the effort

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.
