This project was my first rocking chair and my most challenging and fun project to date. It is a curly maple Sam Maloof inspired rocker. The Maple leaf inlay is mahogany and the finish is a bush oil finish. I did not plan the inlay. As I started to carve out the seat bottom a quarter size cavity started to show.
so my solution was a inlay. I am quite happy with the repair.
When I built the chair I did not have any any books, dvd, plan, or classes of any kind. I watched this video of Sam Maloof http://youtu.be/IKIoezZUK6s and his story inspired me. This chairs not the same as Sam’s design. I was having so much fun building it. I cant wait for the next one.
