Rocking chairs from the plans of Hal Taylor. They feature flexible back braces for real confort. One is in curly cherry with a Danish oil finish and the other in black walnut with a Sam maloof finish.

Very nice chair. What us the difference between hal taylor, maloof and other similer styles? Does one style lend itself to more comfort vs another or any other tyoe of advantage to a particular style?

Those are insanely beautiful. Whatever they sold for, it’s not enough.

Those are both just perfectly done! The curly cherry one is as good as I have ever seen. I am a huge fan of the Maloof style rockers. Maybe someday I’ll attempt one.

Thank you everyone for your comments. The major difference betwen the Taylor and Maloof inspired rockers are the back braces in wich the Taylor are flexible and conforms to your back entirely. Both styles are beautifull.
