  1. Child's Rocking Chair

    My father in law is a woodworker and would make little rocking chairs for his great grandchildren when they were around two. He is getting up in years and has finally decided to "pass the torch" to a younger generation. My daughter's baby needed a little rocker like her big brother and this is...
  2. Mulberry Rocker

    finally got around to making somthing in the shop again. This is from the biggest Mulberry tree I ever saw. My Moms neighbor had it cut because of the mess it made on her back porch. I only got some of the large limbs as they left the lowest 20 ft and did not cut because of a fence growing in it.
  3. Motorcycle Rocker

    I started looking for plans to build a Motorcycle Rocker in November. I knew I wanted to build one of my 18 month old grandson. After several weeks of searching, I found a set at www.cherrytreetoys.com. I received the plans at the end of November. The plans were full size and easy to read. I...
  4. Doll Rocker Cradle

    Kind of an unusual project. A neighbor lady wanted to know if I could fix a doll cradle she got at a flea market and of course I said sure, it's what I do. After I got it apart I realized that it was really beat - wood was rotted and kind of smelled old. I asked her what she was going to do with...
  5. Rocky the motor cycle

    This rocking motor cycle emerged from 'Santa's Workshop' in 2005 for my little grandson Sam. The overall idea came from a magazine article but I heavily modified it. It's meant to represent a mid 1950's two-stroke trials bike with a Villiers engine, but scale model it's not! Materials were...
  6. Sculpted Rocker

    Sculpted rocker made of Cherry. I know there are quite a few similar rockers posted using plans from Hal Taylor. Here's my shot at one. I used two sequential slabs of very wide cherry. (picture) The only thing I changed from the plan is the arm design. I made mine a little more round to suit...
  7. Another Maloof style rocker

    The Maloof style rocker seems to be almost as ubiquitous as Norm's router table and here is my attempt. This is my first rocker (there will be others) using the plans from Hal Taylor ( http://www.rockingchairs.net/ ). As this is my prototype, I have more than a couple of ideas on how the next...
  8. Child's Rocker

    The design for this rocker was given to me by Sam, a woodworker in Port Alberni, BC, Canada over 20 years ago. The patterns sat around in my locker for 15 years before I decided to make one. This is a puzzle design that has no nails screws or fasteners of any kind. I have built 3 so far and each...
  9. Rocker

    I was fortunate to see Sam Maloof demonstrate for our club last year. Amazing skill and a really nice man. Luck followed me and a local cabinet maker, Harold Dodson, agreed to teach me how he makes Maloof inspired rockers. I'm a rookie at this stuff and had no idea how well the final product...
  10. sculpted rocker in spectacular bastogne walnut

    I apologize for the picture quality. They really don't do this walnut justice . The chair was made from three sequential bastogne walnut slabs. I'm super happy with how it came out. A big thank you to Hal Taylor and ofcourse Sam Maloof.
  11. Oak and walnut Hal Taylor rocker

    Here's my oak Hal Taylor rocker with walnut accent. I'm sure there are plenty of these on the site so I won't bore you all with details of the build, unless asked :). A couple things I did differently are the screw plugs, which were not done in a contrasting wood, and the finish I chose. Hal...
  12. Stokes Rocker

    My grandmother and her brother inherited their parents' farm in Illinois. Her nephew lived there for years, and in 1986 he cut down a large walnut tree on the property. He had it sawn into lumber and kiln dried, then used half of it for a large dining room table and brought the other half to...
  13. Sarah's rocking horse

    Made this rocker for my granddaughter Sarah, The body is black walnut with curly maple accents/inlays. the rockers are ash. Was a fun project. Thanks for looking.
  14. Pair of Red Cedar Rockers

    This is a pair of red cedar rockers I made using lumber I sawed. They have cupholders in both armrest, curved backs and are quite comfortable. There is some awesome grain patterns and colors in the wood, I tried to capture this in the closeup of the armrest. Thanks for looking,
  15. Contemporary Windsor Rocking Chair

    This is a windsor constructed rocking chair. Many people have become familiar with a similar design that Peter Galbert put in Fine Woodworking about a year ago. I first sat in this chair when I had been on a visit to Pete's home and made a continuous arm chair with him. After the end of day...
  16. Glider

    I designed an outdoor bench for a client this past spring that he wanted to match his porch swing. He wanted built in cat boxes with a seat that lifts up so he could clean out the cat boxes easily. He liked that bench so well I ended up building two more benches without the cat boxes for this...
  17. Maloof Rocking Chair via Charles Brock's package and Coy Powell's inspiration

    Completed July 2010. Contrasting wood is alder. This is my first MRC, after coaching Coy Powell on his. This is the most challenging piece of furniture I have built. You'd think that a chair that contacts the floor in only two places would be easier to build than one that lands on four. You...

    First project and post on Lumberjocks! This is a rocking horse I built. several firsts on this one. 1. using rough lumber 2. CURVES!!! bent laminated rockers. 3. Compound angles…. see "Legs" below 4. Dovetail/tenon joints Construction: The whole thing is made out of Hard Maple with Walnut...
  19. Maloof Inspired Rocking Chair

    I have another Grandchild due November 6th 2014 and wanted to make something special for him/her and Mother to share and maybe to eventually be passed down as he/she grows older. Several years ago I attended a Maloof Rocker Seminar and had the opportunity to sit in an original Maloof Rocker...
  20. Elephant Rocker

    The Mrs. saw an elephant-shaped child's rocking chair on the internet (that's an elephant-shaped chair, not an elephant-shaped child) and loved it. I don't know whether it's kosher to tell the name of the company whose design I knocked off, but you can see the real item if you google for "wood...
