At last; a free class on how to make the Sam Maloof style rocking chair. Each week I will post the instructions for building this style rocker. In addition I will post lots of pictures and information I usually give in my shop classes. Follow along and build your own custom rocking chair. All this will be posted on my web page at and each week I will add the new information. You get all the ‘good stuff’ I give in my personal classes.

I am interested. When will you start uploading info?
I just checked your site and saw no mention of a free web class.

Bill, I requested and received your free instructions and have finished 3 chairs over the past few years. Each one has improved with your guidance and instruction.

I will be looking forward to your classes.

A big thanks from New Mexico for taking the time to teach this art!
