- Curly maple- Built in 2011- Matching side table
Building this chair was FUN, even though it required sanding until my fingers bled (literally).

This is fantastic…a definite favorite for me. Wonderful lines and an inspiration to see it. Be proud of this piece for sure…. I think this is what craftsmenship is all about. Your sanding and hard work in my opinion was very worth the while….enjoy it!

You have a beautiful rocker! Great wood and fantastic craftsmanship. I bet you can’t build just one! I’m having trouble deciding which wood (maple, walnut, or cherry) to use for my rocker. I may have to build 3 of them…

I think most of us who love to work with wood find Sam Maloof to be an inspiration. I think your work would make him proud – well done!!

Yeah this is a bucket list item for me too. Are you using Charles Brock video and book? I am about half way thru my walnut Maloof Rocker and it ’s taking a lot longer than I thought. Roughing out the arms is tough, (getting them to match) I don’t have a band saw big enough to cut the head piece. Not sure how I’m going to over come that. In the mean time will be building the jig for rocker laminations. Any advice would be great.
