I am an inspired woodworker who specializes in hand sculpted custom wooden rocking chairs and tables built to standards seldom seen these days. My one man shop nestles in Acton Ontario Canada just west of Toronto. I build custom furniture and look forward to hearing from you. Enjoy my site and let your imagination be part of the way you connect to me and my furniture.

Re: Sculpted Cherry Bar Stools

Thank you - Hayes Furniture Design

Re: Rocking Chair - Curly Walnut & Birdseye Maple

The headrest or "crest rail" is built from 6 pieces of 1 3/8'' think pieces of solid walnut that have been coopered then edge glued.

By doing this we are able to keep the grain in the entire chair running in the same direction, this also give us a much stronger long grain to long grain joint where the headrest attaches to the leg.

Because of the coopering I achieve a much deeper curve then on a typical Maloof style rocking chair, which = comfort!

I have built several double rocking chairs with the same design in the headrest but a span twice the length and years later they are exactly the same as when I built them.

Re: Maloof Chest of Drawers

Looks like you did an excellent job, I love the style of Maloof, some where I read that he came up with the round over everything style like the chest, but it's actually call a California round because local woodworkers to him in California started doing the same style.
