I finally got the help I needed and have now posted the first of, at least, 10 episodes on building the Maloof style rocking chair. These class are totally free and available on my web site at www.kappelusa.com. The first episode has been posted and is the Introduction to be followed, hopefully, by next Saturday with building the ‘Seat’ etc. I will be illustrating each critical step in building this rocker with all the jigs, templates, procedures, tools, woods and techniques I use. I will show how to make ‘perfect’ leg to seat joints with each of the tools such as the table-saw, router, band-saw and hand tools. I will show how to make the rounded bottom seat for aesthetics and a more comfortable seating. All the good stuff will be there even my jig for a perfect joint will be explained so you won’t need a table-saw.
The plan is to give enough information so any woodworker, even with a limited shop, can make this style rocker. I promise if you follow along one step at a time you too can make this rocker.
Be sure to order your Free text so you can follow along and fill in the blank spots such as sizes of the parts. Generally I won’t waste time giving details of items available in the text such as size of the parts.
My helper will be available this coming Saturday and without him I could never have gotten this far. He will help me make the videos then edit and post same.
