this is the final tweak. next one, hopefully in walnut. I may put slight more curve to the back legs and back rest may be an inch taller but this is pretty much it. kudos to Mr. Sam Maloof for his inspirational life.

I would like nothing more than to sit on that chair. Very nice and well done!

Man, that is a great chair. One hell of a prototype! You should be very proud. I wish I could my hands on that much spalted wood. Nicely done man!

What a lovely chair. Can you tell us some of the things you’ve learned since you started making “prototypes”? I’ve always wanted to make a Sam Maloof style rocker.

great looking chair. I like how you shaped the front legs at the leg seat joint.

I took a small dremel to the front legs. removed the bulk with that kutzall disc.what did I learn?......cutting order: on the first 3 chairs I cut the bulk of the legs out first and saved the small portion of the inside back rest for last but that made it almost impossible because I had no flat surface to be on the band saw table.
blade; it’s much easier with the finest tooth blade. always try to think ahead as much as possible to save myself extra work.
it’s ok to slow down.
I think doing 4 would be easier than one-at a time.
sam maloof developed his designs gradually but he stuck with the same ones. I read that one yesterday in a old FWW magazine when I was feeling down.
measure 10 times, cut once (for me anyway)
