Just finished my second rocker. Cherry with 6-7 coats of a poly/oil mix rubbed in.
I tweeted a few things about hat I wasn’t really fond of on my first one. I did have one mishap when one of the dowels for the headrest blew out. I ended up replacing the headrest.
I think there is at least one more in my future. A couple more things I’d like to try. I better figure out how to sell these things, or I’m going to end up with a house full of rockers.

Nice job! I finally finished my first one a couple of months ago and there are plenty of things I want to change on my next one, mostly better grain matching, which you did a good job of.

Thanks. I make sure to get all matching pieces from the same board, and to get similar grain. It’s starting to become an addiction

Awesome job Ty! I really don’t think you will have a hard time selling it. Sometimes it’s harder to let something that nice go. I would like to have your talent to make a rocker that well!

Thanks for all the kind remarks. For some reason this is one of those things I just have to get right.

Anything Maloof is serious heirloom furniture. It would be a shame to ‘half ass’ anything on any of his designs.
Looks Awesome.
