Here is a Maloof Lowback chair I was commissioned to build for a former client..It’s a lot easier than a rocker, but there was a ton of sculpting and shaping..but I did have a good time with it.. I posted more details and pictures on my website. This chair has only one coat of finish..I will be adding 12 more coats to really give it that shine

feel free to check it out and post comments.. Thanks for looking!!

Love that, Randy! Those lines are just flowing so freely. Must be really comfortable.

Thats a great chair. You’ve done a great job at carving and shaping the chair. The joinery looks fabulous.

Thanks everyone..

SCengineer..I used the maloof mixture since it’s what the customer wanted..I apply 6 coats of the poly/oil and 6 coats of the oil/wax..it will really look nice after the final coat..
