Has anyone ever built a Maloof inspired porch rocker? The only ones that I have seen are from Gary Weeks
I know that it would depend on what type pf wood, I was thinking of using Mahogany. I know that there might also be problems with the solid seat. Would a solid 8/4 carved seat crack with changes in humidity? Looking at the rockers by Gary Weeks be uses an open seat but still carved. What about a coopered headrest like Hal Taylor uses, would that split?
I have had several requests for porch rockers and I want to get a good design that won’t fail before attempting one. I live in central Pennsylvania whcih has shifts in humidity.
