I told my wife she would have the chair for the birth of our first child. She got it a few days before his 1st birthday!

It turned out great, worth the wait. I have one more chair to build before I will get to starting my Maloof style rocker. I’m sure your wife will love it, especially at “storytime” with your one year old. (By the way the photography is excellent as well.)

Beautiful rocker. I bet it even looks better rocking her baby to sleep! I’ve wanted to build a Maloof rocker for a long time. I’ve saved a cherry crotch that I slabbed into 2 1/4” thick slabs to build something special. Looks like it’s going to be a rocking chair.

I’ve got to make one of these.
Beautiful work, I’m sure Mom and the baby will love it too.
I must ask 2 things, how many hours do you think this project took, and is this your design?

Thanks everyone for the kind words. It was a picture of a similar rocker on the cover of a Sam Maloof book that got me started in woodworking, so it was inevitable that i would build one someday! This was my first attempt at a rocker. I did a little tweaking but the design is one of Scott Morrison’s. I would definitely recommend getting his plans if you are interested in building one yourself. It took me about 120 hours. I became very close with my spokeshave on this project. I plan to post a few more projects of my own design and i look forward to your comments. Its always good to hear from others with the same passion!
