  1. New Rock'N Chairmen!

    I am so proud of all of the Rock'N Chairmen who have built their first rocker using my Maloof Inspired Instructional bundle since it went on sale last August. These are just a few of the recent new Rock'N Chairmen who have finished their first chair. Fred Deadrick from CA built the beautiful...
  2. Sam Maloof style rocker

    I participated in a class to build a Sam Maloof style rocking chair taught by Randy Child. Randy was a friend of Sam Maloof and has built many rockers in this style. He offers a class in California but he came to VA to teach the class I attended. The chair is tiger maple with a 'colonial...
  3. Seven Days - Five Rockers - Five Dreams

    August 3-9, I taught a class of five hopeful craftsman the art of building a Maloof Inspired Rocker. It is so exciting to see their initial enthusiasm and to see them start to believe that this project that they have wanted to do for so long is coming alive through the diligence of their hands...
  4. Maloof Inspired Shoe Bench

    Hello again woodworking friends, Here is a completed Maloof inspired shoe bench. Made from Rosewood. I saw one once when visitiing Sam's home, and marveled at the simplicity and beauty, so I knew I had to build one. So I did! Enjoy…
  5. The toughest project I have ever built...Maloof inspired Music Stand

    Don't get me wrong, I love getting orders from clients, but when someone places an order for one of these, I cringe just a tad because I know what's coming. These things are a BEAR to build. But afterward, when I am relaxing and smoking my Victory Cigar, it is all worth the effort (also shown...
  6. Picture frames for my mother-in-law

    Seems like frames are the only things i build these days…
  7. Free form Sam Maloof's joints

    Free form stool/table from an urban walnut tree cut a few years ago in my neighborhood. The combination of a complicated joint and the simplicity of the walnut natural shape complement each other for a nice balanced design. The finish is 5coats of shellack with one drop of red dye and then car...
  8. River Table

    This river coffee table is made of "Claro Walnut" and "Argentine Mesquite" with glass, sparkle, metal legs and clear epoxy. Just the latest and probable my last project. I still do give the FREE text on how to build a Sam Maloof rocking chair to anyone who will email me a request at...
  9. Marble Top Table

    My Father-in-law used to be a stone mason from Bedford Indiana (Limestone Capital of the world…they say). Anyway, he once had a job in the 50s replacing the ceiling in a mosque in Indianapolis, IN. The sheets of marble covering the ceiling were so heavy and large they bowed to the point that...
  10. DeWalt Table Saw Extension

    I have a DeWalt Contractors table saw and just purchased a Kreg Miter Fence to use with it. Found out several things in my haste. The table is not wide enough and DeWalt does not offer one to fit this saw. So I go over to the bog box hardware store and purchase one of those white shelf boards...
  11. Vern Fish 's Award Winning Maloof Inspired Rocker

    I am a woodworker, teacher and publisher of Build A Maloof Inspired Rocker with Charles Brock. My favorite woodworking project is to help other fine woodworkers realize their dream of building the Maloof Inspired rocker on their "Bucket List." I am so proud of all of them. Here is one Rock'N...
  12. Belly up to the bar (Maloof inspired Bar Stools)

    Hello fellow LJ'ers. Just delivered these three bar stools to a semi-local customer. A custom detail was added (note the Cloud Lift on the lower stretchers). The client was very happy, and the celebratory drinks were flowing freely. At the risk of a self-indulgent plug, if you would like to...
  13. Lacewood rocking chair

    I already have this chair in my projects, but I did't have totally finished pictures yet. So here they are finished pictures setup in my "studio " lol Customer picked up his chair last week and was very happy, I think he strapped the chair down better then his own kid, J/k kid was safe of course.
  14. Maloof style Settee

    Here's another Maloof inspired (attempted replica) Settee in Walnut. As you can see it's basically the same as the Arm chairs I've posted here in the past. It's a fun project and not too hard once you get the dimensions and templates worked out. I used the "Sam Maloof" slot and round-over bits...
  15. Drop leaf table holdouts

    Someone asked me, back when I first posted this table, for pictures of the holdouts but I'm just now getting around to posting them. I was going to post these as a comment on the original Project but I'm not smart enough. So here they are, I tried to mold them in to the bottom of the table as...
  16. Six chairs in six months (or eight)

    I am so happy to finally finish this project. It tested my love for woodworking and my dislike of sanding. The wood is Elm, to match some bar stools that I build last year, the finish is shellac. I did contemplate to build a jig to carve the six seats so they will have the same shape, but I...
  17. Black Limba Rocker

    Black limba Rocker-This Maloof style rocker is made from an exotic wood called Black Limba. I was hunting for Zebra wood and got this wood instead. We liked how the grain went from a line pattern to a leopard pattern. It was pretty easy to work with. Walnut is on the back lumbar support and...
  18. My Maloof Inspired Rocker

    Some of you may know I have spent the last few months designing and building a Maloof style rocker. Now when i say designing. I do not mean that i designed anything that has not already been thought of before. What i mean is that i had no plans, dimensions or templates to work from. Wich made...
  19. Maloof Rocker Lacewood and Walnut

    For my latest challenge I decided to make a Maloof rocker. The rocker was a fun project for me and was a great excuse to purchase a bandsaw. The rocker turned out great. I followed Scott Morrison's plans and they were very easy to follow. The most time consuming part of the project was the...
