I want to share a link to a couple of news articles that came out today in my local newspaper. The stories cover a couple of guys that I have met and one I have come to know.
First is Scott Morrison and he makes a living selling the Maloof style rockers. He lives in Columbus, MT a small town west of Billings.
The link is to the local paper here in Billings, Montana.
There are a couple of short videos as part of the online article that you may find interesting.
You may recognize his work as it has been published in magazines many times.
His website is http://finewoodworker.com
He has recently released a 4 disc instructional video on how to make the Maloof style rockers. He asked me to take a look at it for feedback and I hope to get a review out on it soon. It is very thorough from what I can see so far but I do not want get into detail here.
There is also a second related article on Robert Erickson. I have had a couple of good conversations with him at the furniture shows. He does incredible work and I think you will recognize it too.
Here is a link to Robert Erickson’s site: http://www.ericksonwoodworking.com/index.html
It’s always great to meet or know guys of this caliber. They have had a tremendous influence on me.
Well, back to the shop!
