Wow, just when I think I know what I’m doing around the shop someone has to go and post something like this.

Absolutely gorgeous. I’ve always admired Maloof’s work, but have never had the confidence and/ or skill set to emulate it. I am very impressed!

Beautiful work Doug. It would be nice to know some more details? What finish did you use? Did you work from specific plans or fabricate as you went? How did you achieved the inlay and the species used for that? Your project pages show a lot of highly skilled work, but are short on details. That’s a shame. It would be great to know more about your projects.

Well anyway, beautiful job on the rocker!

Some more details: sealed with shellac and top coated with wiping varnish. I followed the Wood Whisperer Guild series to help with the build. The inlay is purple heart, maple, and I copped out on the stem and used tinted epoxy.
