beautiful rocker!

I'm curious about how the seat was made (glue-up, solid piece, which direction does the grain run?) It seems like it would have a tendency to be weak in the center if "nanny" was on the chubby side.

is it for two people? or you decided which direction youd like to sit? is it comfortable?

I really like the idea here. Only problem I see is that for people like me it wouldn't work. Both of my kids had a sixth sense about when they weren't actually being held. So in our house that extra wing would have served only as a drink holder and magazine rack.

this is a great chair. Maloof has a similar one in his book. Nice work!

Gerrry, glad to meet you in this site. The Yahoo site is good, but in this one there is a trove of material to learn from. Great chair.

Charlie, the seat and cradle area uses 9 boards glued together. The chair seems to hold up really well to
plump nannies. It has had people over 300 pounds sit in it without coming apart. The cradle rail and 21 spindles
around the cradle probably act as a truss to strengthen the seat. Scott Morrison builds a similar cradle
rocker. He placed a lot more weight than 300 pounds in his chair and it stayed together.
Maloof has built several double rockers and settees that are about the same leg spacing as my chair.

This is a great piece and you have done a nice job on it.

I know Scott Morrison from the furniture shows and he lives not far from where I do.

Beautifully designed and executed. It looks like a real Maloof! I saw his exhibit at the Renwick Gallery and the cradle he made for his daughter was on display. I was also able to sit in one of his chairs at the exhibit. Got me hooked ~ by the seat at that!

Gerry what are the dimensions of the cradle part? Whats the width of the entire chair with cradle? I am thinking of attempting one of these in the near future.

I know this is an older post so I apologize for posting
