Project Information

After a long time in the making, I've finally finished my first Maloof style rocker, thanks to Hal Taylor. His help and plans and the cadre of other Taylor educated chair makers has made one of the items on my bucket list a reality. The problem is, now I want to make another one …..............I just hope it doesn't take as long.
To further move the process into high gear, I just purchased a 5" Ceros ROS from Mirka. The most expensive tool I've ever purchased, other than my Powermatic 3520b lathe. I think this is getting SERIOUS!

I love the way you shaped the top of the back spindles, IMHO, it adds a very artistic touch to the chair. Excellent work! I might have to put one of those on my bucket list.

Your rocker turned out great. Beautifully matched and arranged wood and sculpted very nicely. Your turnings are outstanding. The turned cowboy hat is amazing. I've got to try that one day.

Really nice, it is a bucket list project for me… I have the plans, and the Rocking Chair University t-shirt….but not made the chair yet.

Excellent execution. I made my wife's for our 50th and it is one of the most satisfying projects I've ever done but I had 450 hours in it. Sam told the story that he always had an unfinished chair in the shop so when clients came by asking why their order was taking so long he could point to it and tell them the order was under way :>)

Looks great, you did a very good job. I am in process of starting one of these from the Charles Brock plans and seeing finished chairs inspires me to get going on it!
