  1. Maloof Rocker from Claro Walnut

    Early 2018, I looked at making a Maloof Style Rocker as it was one of the things on my bucket list of projects. I looked at pictures and posts on LJ along with the web and at plans. I found two woodworkers who offered both Instruction Manuals and Classes. One was Hal Taylor and the other was...

  3. Sculptured Pedestal 48" Diameter Dining Table

    For over eight years I have specialized in making chairs, especially sculptured or Sam Maloof style rockers. During the previous twenty-five years, I built tables, beds and chests. It was very nice to build a table again. Most of my work is in walnut and this is no different. It goes with...
  4. Maloof Inspired Two Seat Bench

    Maloof inspired two seat bench in Cherry, with the traditional Maloof finish. This is absolutely my favorite project to date, for several reasons. While inspired by a few different pieces, including the low back chair I made as well as Scott Morrison's twosome bench...

  9. Mother's Day Rocking Chair

    My first-born son was due on 5/22/14. So in Sept of '13, when i first learned we were expecting, i started this rocking chair project with hopes that i would finish before he was born. Luck being what it is, the baby came almost 2 weeks early (on 5/11) and so the chair wasn't finished until he...
  10. Rocking Chair, Maloof and me

    Finally finished my "Maloof and me" rocking chair. This project I started last spring and worked gradually to completion. Have been intrigued by the elegance and structural integrity of Maloof style joints and the whole concept of building a custom fit, sculptured rocker for a while. Well, this...
  11. Maloof-inspired Dining Table

    This table is built from Scott Morrison's plans and uses an ingenious design to join the legs together. The centre post has a groove on all four sides and the legs have a tenon which fits into the groove. A cove routed into the post's corners provide a continuous joint which looks like the wood...
  12. Birdseye Maple Rocker Complete

    This project is a very special one for me and today was a momentous day for me when I put the first coat of finish on it. This is a Christmas present for my Dad and uses wood we collected from the land around his childhood home. We visited a small mill in the woods owned by a friend of my...

    This sculpted dining chair built from solid Walnut and Curly Maple was designed by me and built by my self and my apprentice who did 80% of the work of course with a few pointers. The chair has Maloof joints to attach the legs to the seat…...strong! The back braces were formed using bent...
  14. Island Stool with Maloof joints

    This is Charles Brock's Island stool design. I purchased the plans and CD from Charles and they worked great. I must have watched that CD over a hundred times. Lots of firsts for me: Maloof joints and power sculpting with the Kutzall grinding disc. Finally got the hang of spokeshaves as well...
  15. Maloof Inspired - COVID lock down project

    I have a woodworking bucket list, one of those items to make was a Maloof inspired rocking chair. When COVID lockdowns hit, I decided since I had much more forced time at home, I might as well do something with it. I started the chair on May 1st and I finished on Nov 30th. I didn't work every...
  16. Walnut Rocker

    I'd like to post more of the outdoor photos I took on my back porch, but they're over the 5MB limit. The first day of planning a rocking chair like this (or any big project) has probably the largest affect on how it turns out due to the grain you've selected for any given piece of the chair. On...

  19. More rocking chairs

    So, after I finished my first rocking chair I asked my wife where she wanted them. Her reply was "put them on the front porch". To me, that seemed like sacrilege. I had spent months researching, looking at Maloof rockers and other clones. Not to mention the hours of building and endless sanding...
