A new Claro Walnut rocking chair with ivory and burled Mesquite accents that my class students learn to make during my $300 dollar seminar. They get all the text, patterns and jigs I use plus as many pictures as they want to take. I can show any woodworker how to make these Sam Maloof style handcrafted rocking chair using mostly just hand tools, no expensive tools needed. It is a lot of work, but you will know how to make one and I am always ready to answer questions plus you will have the full instruction text with patterns and jigs.

Beautiful chair -so I will ask the obvious question – where is your class held and when?

Thank you for the kind words. I live in Ephraim, Ut and I hold classes any time one wants to come visit (except Sunday). Go to my web site at www.kappelusa.com to see more info. Believe me you already know most of what to do if you are a woodworker. I will demonstrate and explain all that is necessary so you to can build these rockers. I even show some unique ways to make a perfect leg joint as well as a few other procedures that Sam Maloof himself used in his later years.

That is a mighty fine chair. I will have to drop in and get some tips when I visit my Uncle in Ephraim.
