« Part 2: Carving Arms Part 3 of Maloof Rocker - Padauk series Part 4: Setting aside for now »

Havn’t completed much work lately on my chair, my wife and I recently bought a new house so we are trying to sell our current one. Last night I was able to do my first rough grinding on the seat. Looks like I will be able to save a good amount of the white sap wood that runs through the seat. I also have started to glue up the back supports and rockers (no pictures). I have decided to add strips of maple into the rockers and back supports as an accent.

Tonight I will spend a few hours dansing the seat to try and smooth out the grinder marks.

One day I will have the time and skill to make one of these. Right now it seems too daugnting a task. Looks great. Keep up the good work.
