This is my rendition of Sam Maloof’s rocking chair. It is made from walnut with maple highlights in the rockers. Finished with 3 coats of Maloof oil.

Thank you all. Tim this was the first chair i have ever built. It took me about a week to build and it really wasnt too bad. I believe highland woodworking sells a how-to guide to build a maloof style rocker.
