So this is my second Chair and it was slightly more challenging than the first. But i really enjoyed the build.
I Definitely have a great appreciation for sam maloofs work it really showed me that by leaving allot of meat on the bone shall we say, you can make joinery look beautiful by sculpting it after assembly.
as well as using hard and soft lines to give a piece style.
Since the first chair was for my wife, this one was all mine =).
Like the first Chair i went with the Walnut with Purple Heart Plugs. I know I know its not ebony but hey sometimes you make due with with what you got in the shop…
Anyways i have about 40-45 hours in this chairs and it was a pretty straight forward build.

Fantastic job Joe. It looks like it was not that easy a build. The seat and those sculpted arms are still way beyond my capabilities. Maybe some day. Pat

That is a beautiful rocker Joe…. I am sure Sam is looking down and giving you the thumbs up of a job well done.
It has that look that you just want to sit back in it and relax after a hard days work in your shop with a rather large grin on your face that says…”I made this”...lol Well done.

Joe, That is a work of art! I like your wood choices and the color of that walnut is just perfect. Very warm and inviting.
