« Part 6: Arms attached and grinding begins Part 7 of Maloof Rocker - Padauk series Part 8: Getting closer »

Today I finished all the transition grinding and attached the headrest. The headrest still doesn’t have the back support holes drilled but I fit and shaped it in. Still have to glue up 3 more back supports and mill them all to a uniform size. I did the final trimming on the rockers today (no picture) and next have to glue up the transition pieces and round over the edges. I have two weeks to complete this chair before my wife and I move, promised her no red dust in the new house.

Once again my not so helpful helper is in the pictures. Sorry about the quality but I took these around 5:30 right when a storm was approaching (raining as I type) so the light wasn’t the best.

Still working on the chair, recently moved so havn’t have alot of time to work on it. I have all the back supports completed and installed as well as the rockers completed. I have to redo one of my back supports due to splintering when routing the edges. I have to finish shaping the rockers and sanding before its complete. I will try to post another blow soon with all the progress.

I am also working on a Cherry childrens Maloof rocker for my niece. I have everything done on that but the rockers and final fitting of the heardrest. Will add pictures of this chair to next blog.

Have your say...
