My latest chair, using templates from Scott Morrison, was a lot of fun to make. Next up is designing my own chair.
Like the others, this is Walnut with with the Maloof oil/varnish and oil/wax finish.

I was interested in your post. A Maloof rocker is on my list. You have done a great job. Excellent joinery and a beautiful finsih. Photo number 2 with the sharp focus on the side and joinery and the blurred autumn colours in the background is a great shot.

That barstool looks as good or better than anything that has ever come out of my workshop. I agree with the other poster, VERY nice work on the photography as well.
Excellent work and thank you for sharing.

Now that is gorgeous! Some day, I’ll get around to building a Maloof-inspired piece, but not today. Will you be making another one or two of these to line the bar with? Maybe another one in walnut, and one more in a contrasting color to stick in between the walnut pieces?
Now that you’ve built 3-Maloof-inspired pieces, I’ll be curious to watch your own design unfold, develop, and ultimately come to life. I hope you will consider blogging about it.

That is really nice Mike, nice lines and finish looks perfect. How fine do you go on the sanding?

Thanks everyone for the kind comments, it’s greatly appreciated.
@Tim: I sand to 400 grit sanding discs and then follow that with 500 and 1000 grit Abralon pads. I just can’t get Walnut to finish nicely without sanding that far. It may be something wrong with how I do the finish, I don’t know, but it’s what works for me.
