This is the 5th chapter in my book entitiled Maloof Madness. I started building these rockers a little over a year ago after seeing Charles Brock’s demonstration at Woodworking in America. I have tried to make each one a little different, this one is black walnut with hickory spindles. (A belated Christmas present for my sister) I used the 3 step finish Charles advertises on Highland Woodworking site, basically and oil and wax finish. It came out with a very flat finish, I was able to get only a minimal sheen to it even with quite a bit of hand buffing. I have enough walnut stashed in my shop for about 10 more chairs, now if i could only find some 8/4 cherry!!!
