Hello fellow woodworkers.

I thought you might enjoy seeing what I’ve been working on lately. This project is now available as a DVD and includes templates. You can visit my website to see more details (click on any image).

This is my first project posting here on Lumberjocks. I hope I did it right. ;)

Very nice design and looks elegant & comfy.
It is interesting if you can detail out how you dimension & shape the legs – in sequence. I’m really interested to know the size of the stock (for the legs) and the joinery used.

Thanks for the warm welcome!

Masrol, I will be posting some in-progress shots soon. For now, I can say that all wood I normally use for my chairs is 8/4. In this case, the leg-to-seat joinery is a simple overlapping dado.

Spencer – Thank you! Todd “Captain Clippinger” is a heckuva nice guy and I am lucky to know him. The book is still in progress (sigh), but with luck, will be out in early summer. Thanks for looking.

This is a gorgeous design.

It is great to see that you have done much more than just the Maloof inspired rocker. It speaks to your own talent that you have developed several furniture designs with the elements that Sam made famous.

This is a great piece for sure.
