Its been about a year since I've started building Maloof rockers. Recently I sold the first one I built and its easy to see Ive come a long ways with shaping and whatnot. The primary wood in this is a higher figured Bubinga (not a good time to work with) and the secondary is Curly Maple. I laminated the spindles and I have started sloping the arms like Maloof did instead of leaving them flat. Also I have started to finish with Festool's Surfix oil. There is a wax mixed in and it leaves a fantastic finish.
