Topic tags/keywords: rocking chair

All the good stuff even shop secrets and the jigs I use. Over 40 pages with pictures and detailed instructions to make a Grandpa rocker, as an heirloom, with your own flair added to the Sam Maloof style. This is a draft copy of the student manual I give in my rocking chair classes. Of course some of the advanced techniques are not in this draft, but everything is there to make a nice custom rocker. In fact you will get more free info and proprietary stuff than in other offers costing hundreds.

I have made this offer in the past and was overwhelmed, but during a long convalescent I have caught up and am able to make this information available again.

You must go to my web site at then send the applicable code # found at the ‘classes/code’ bar button on the left side of the opening page. If you send me an email to I can attach the file to my reply. If you use the LJ format I can not attach the info. To expoedite place the code #, only, in the subject line. All the rest of the emails I delete or review later.

I use a code # in the subject line so I know it is not junk mail, but a serious woodworker. I offer a lot of services tagged with code #s so please be accurate. This code # changes daily so be sure to use the correct #.

Would love to help, but you must go to my web site at and send me the code #. I can then attach the file. Can’t do it using this format on LJ.

Thanks Bill,

When I joined LJ’s I found your original offer, and was disappointed to find that it had been discontinued.

I am ecstatic that you have revived the offer. A few months ago I bought some Zebrano for a rocker for my wife. Now I know she’ll get a good one.

I have sent my request.

Thanks again.
