Hal Taylor re-invented the 'Maloof Rocker' with subtle design elements - as well as a few significant changes - that add to both the beauty and comfort of his style. Simply, your body molds into the chair… with its free-moving back braces, cupped arm pads, the more generous seat well - the way that seemingly sharp edges are relieved. The back leg is sculpted to clear your elbow, as you sit. - All small things that the eye doesn't see.

What the eye does see is the symmetrical, mirrored grain patterns; and a 'flow' that keeps your eye moving in the transitions from one element to the next.

This is a beautiful execution of a beautiful design.

Strongly agree with MJCD and all the other commenters … that's a beautiful rocking chair. I started a similar project several months back. It's still "in process" so I have some understanding of how much time you invested.

Hal teaches that woodworking is, and Rocking Chairs especially are, a journey. Building one of these averages about 100 to 110 hours of learning a Process, and executing it with precision. I've built 8 of these (not quite as good looking as the one above); and use the skills accumulated on everything else I build.
