Rocker I am working on now made from Bastogne Walnut in my “Crown Jewel” Malood style. See pictures of finished rocker on my web site at

FREE text on how to make these rockers is available on this web site.

I have been making these rockers for over 60 years and would like to share my ideas with other woodworkers desiring to make the Maloof style rocker.

The completed rocker was made from small pieces of wood to show how using what you have in your shop is compatible with making these rockers.

The only tools necessary are a band saw some hand tools and a sander that’s it on table saw necessary or other exotic tools. A router is handy, but not necessary.

I will show you how to make perfect joints, angle cuts and assembly in almost any woodworking shop.
In reality this style rocker is easy to make if you follow my text and patterns.
