Phil, are you enjoying this chair in your day-to-day life? Just sitting in it and enjoying your work must be very relaxing.

It is real nice to sit in-I just remember how many hours tedious sanding was needed to smooth it out and shiver! ;) Thanks.

Thanks for giving credit to Sam Maloof. There are many who use his elements of furniture design to make a living, and fail to give credit to him. Thanks for being truthful, it doesn't take anything away from your abilities, or the beauty of your work

The chair is quite obviously Sam's-from the joinery and timber to the design. It was so enjoyable to make (bar the sanding!) and I really started to understand how Sam works. By the time I've made another 50 I think I'll be there ;)
An amazing Guy,
Cheers
Phil

Philip:
I posted a question in the Forums on making carved seat bottoms. I would appreciate your help on how you carved out your seat bottom (on the chair of course!).

Hey Phil:
I am so excited, I just finished my Maloof Rocking Chair. Also, I found out that I get to hear Sam Maloof give a lecture this upcoming September at the Western Design Conference in Cody, WY. I'll get some good photos of the chair, and will post them later.

thanks,

Hey Phil:
I am so excited, I just finished my "Maloof-inspired Rocking Chair". It doesn't look near as good as Sam's originals, but I sure can appreciate all of the work he puts into them now.

Congrats on the chair!! Looking forward to the pics-which timber did you use?
A Sam Maloof lecture?? Nice-no I'm not jealous at all ;)
Cheers

Gorgeous chair Phil. I hope it isn't long before you find all the sanding was worth it. - Or is a less painful memory at least.

I think it's a great chair. There's nothing like the feel of a nice smooth piece of furniture. I bet everybody that sees it, has to rub there hands all over it.

I was looking through shuffle and saw this wonderful chair. Made me wonder what you were up to. Had not seen you post here in quite a while. Hope all is well.

I'll never forget my Sam Maloof lesson from Mark D. I made the mistake of saying something like Sam being too busy to give anyone any real feedback on their chairs. Mark asked me in so many words to read a little about what I was talking about. Which I humbly did and am very glad that I did. An out standing individual as well as artist. Very nice chair Phil.
